Player Notes
Cubs placed LHP Felix Doubront on the 15-day disabled list with a calf strain.

Advice: We'd never -- ever! -- accuse a big league club of shenanigans, but... it's possible this is a phantom injury. Doubront, acquired from the Red Sox on Wednesday for a player to be named later or cash considerations, is out of options, and Chicago is happy enough with back-end-of-the-rotation options Kyle Hendricks and Tsuyoshi Wada at the moment. They can now delay Doubront's Chicago debut for a few weeks.

Cubs acquired LHP Felix Doubront from the Cubs for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Advice: Doubront posted a rough 6.07 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 59 1/3 innings this season for Boston and asked for a trade request when the Red Sox pulled him from the rotation. He has good raw stuff and should get a chance to start in Chicago, but the lefty remains a poor fantasy bet.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Cubs have an agreement in place to acquire Felix Doubront from the Red Sox for a player to be named later.

Advice: Doubront has fallen out of favor in Boston, but he should get his wish to start again with the Cubs. The lefty holds a career 4.82 ERA, but he's just 26 and has a career 8.1 K/9 rate, so it's probably worth a shot for Chicago to see if he can right the ship in the National League.

Mopping up after Clay Buchholz was pulled, Felix Doubront gave up six runs while getting just two outs in the sixth inning Monday against the Red Sox.

Advice: The Red Sox brought Doubront in with the idea that he'd pitch at least a couple of innings and maybe even finish the game. Instead, he gave up six hits and two walks to the 10 batters he faced, throwing 36 pitches in the inning. It's possible that it was his last outing with Boston, as he'd like a trade if he's not going to be a starter, but it's quite a bit more likely that he sticks around and gets another chance to start later this year.

Felix Doubront said Sunday that he'd rather be traded if he's not going to start for the Red Sox.

Advice: "If something happens, it's going to happen because it's going to be the best for me," he said. "I just want to be a starter and stay there. If I stay (with the Red Sox), they have to know I have to be a starter. If I go, the other team is going to give me this chance to be a starter." Doubront has little to complain about here, as he holds a 5.22 ERA this season and a pedestrian 4.70 mark during his career. Manager John Farrell indicated that the lefty isn't going to be starting again for the Sox anytime soon. "There's a clear role for him in the bullpen and sometimes performance guides where you're slotted," the skipper said.
