Doubront to miss start; Cook to start Wednesday
Boston Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront will miss his next
turn in the rotation and right-hander Aaron Cook will start
Wednesday against Baltimore.
Boston manager Bobby Valentine said Doubront, 0-3 in four games
since July 18, likely will miss one start. Valentine thinks the
time off will help the 24-year-old left-hander, whose velocity has
been down recently. Doubront has pitched 122 2-3 innings this
season after totaling 35 1-3 in the majors during his first two
seasons with Boston.
Doubront is 10-6 with a 4.70 ERA in 22 starts. Cook is 3-5 with
a 4.70 ERA in nine starts.
