Felix Doubront Injury Update: Doubront Heads To DL

The Boston Red Sox have announced that they've played starting pitcher Felix Doubront on the 15-day Disabled List due to fatigue and a lingering knee injury, according to ESPN.com.

The designation to the DL is retroactive to August 10, making Doubront eligible to play in a week's time.

To fill the roster out in Doubront's absense, infielder Mauro Gomez was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket. He's currently with the team in New York.

Doubront has been inconsistent this season fro Boston, posting a 10-6 record but a 4.70 ERA. In his final two starts before having to go on the DL, the 24-year-old struggled mightily, allowing nine runs in 9.1 innings of work.

The sophomore southpaw is expected back sometime this month, with his injuries not thought to be serious.

Doubront is incredibly the 26th Red Sox to be placed on the DL this year, according to the team's official site.
