REPORT: Doubront Could Be On Trade Block

According to a report by Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything), Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront might be on the trading block. The rationale postulated by Cafardo cites the recent excellent performances by both Brandon Workman and Rubby Del La Rosa—making Doubront somewhat expendable. One AL GM is quoted in Cafardo's column thusly, "He’s attractive because the price is right, he’s a proven major league lefthanded pitcher, and he’s got very good stuff. The Red Sox are in one of those unique situations where they have extra pitching." The article goes on to speculate that the St. Louis Cardinals—who put two starters on the DL this week—are a likely landing spot for Doubront.
