Doubront To Start on Friday

Today, the Red Sox confirmed that Felix Doubront (right) will take Daisuke Matsuzaka's spot in the rotation and pitch on Friday against the Dodgers. It will be Doubront's major league debut, the Sox are playing the rookies as on Saturday Daniel Nava made his major league debut. Daniel Nava has been doing great at .364/1/5 although 4 of those RBIs came on the first pitch of his career! Manager Terry Francona said that pitching coach John Farrell was impressed by Doubront's performance in spring training. So far this year in the AA Portland Sea Dogs, Doubront has gone 4-0/2.51/38 as he has been quite good. I hope Doubront can take advantage of this start and set himself up for future starts at the major league level.
