Doubront (elbow) was moved to the 60-day DL on Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Doubront underwent Tommy John surgery earlier this month, and he'll miss the entire 2016 season. The move to the 60-day DL is essentially a formality, and it clears a spot on the 40-man roster, which the Athletics will use on outfielder Matt McBride, whose contract was selected Wednesday.
Doubront (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. The left-hander received a second opinion on his elbow injury Monday, and his doctor decided that there was enough damage to require surgery. Doubront was supposed to be the Athletics' fifth starter, but he was sidelined with elbow tightness following his final spring start and will now likely miss the rest of the season with the injury. Now that he is going to miss the rest of the season, Jesse Hahn could take over as the fifth starter for Oakland.
Doubront is scheduled for a second opinion on his left elbow sprain next Monday in Cincinnati, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. Doubront will visit with Dr. Timothy Cremchek to determine the extent of the injury, but Nick Paparesta, the Athletics' head trainer, confirmed that the lefty has some "fibrous tearing" in his elbow ligament, according to Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area. Whether or not surgery is ordered up, Doubront appears to be facing a long recovery, which could open the door for Jesse Hahn to enter the rotation.
Doubront (left elbow sprain) will get a second opinion, and is not sure if surgery is in his future, the Bay Area News Group's John Hickey reports. Second opinions are rarely good signs with arm issues for pitchers, so we will cautiously await the results. Eric Surkamp will slot into Doubront's rotation spot for now, but Jesse Hahn is probably a more likely long-term option if Doubront is in for a lengthy absence.
Doubront (forearm) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. Doubront was expected to open the season as the Atheletics' fifth starter, but this ends that plan. The issue originally cropped up on Saturday during his final spring appearance, and the results of an MRI apparently showed enough to put the left-hander on the shelf. Jesse Hahn or Eric Surkamp are likely to take his spot in the rotation. In a corresponding move, Andrew Lambo was recalled from Triple-A Nashville.
