The Red Sox on Wednesday traded left-hander Felix Doubront to the Cubs in exchange for a player to be named later. CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman has confirmed the original report of FoxSports.com's Jon Morosi.
Doubront, 26, has struggled this season: 6.07 ERA in 17 games, 10 of which have been starts. For his career, he's pitched to a 4.82 ERA (86 ERA+) and 2.03 K/BB ratio across parts of five big-league seasons.
The Red Sox originally signed Doubront out of Venezuela in 2005, when current Cubs president Theo Epstein was the Sox's GM.
