Felix Doubront was shelved at the end of last season with some tightness in his elbow. Now he is being shut down again for the same thing.
Elbow problems are always concerning. The Red Sox are being careful, taking the ball out of Doubront's hand for 10 days to two weeks. Hopefully, that will be enough.
Looking for more spring training reports? One source is the Providence Journal's Brian MacPherson. He has more on Doubront, and some other notes, including Jarrod Saltalamacchia learning how to catch Tim Wakefeld.Tweet
