April 1, 2012

Boston manager Bobby Valentine says Felix Doubront and Daniel Bard will fill out the Red Sox rotation.

Valentine announced the final two spots Sunday.

The left-handed Doubront will take the fourth spot and the right-handed Bard will be the fifth starter. Jon Lester, Josh Beckett and Clay Buchholz already had places in the rotation.

Right-hander Alfredo Aceves, who had been competing for one of the spots, will pitch out of the bullpen.
