Felix Doubront gets his first start of the season as the Boston Red Sox (0-3) look for their first win of the new campaign against the Toronto Blue Jays (2-1) at 7:30 p.m. ET on Monday in the first of a three game set at the Rogers Centre.

Whatever could go wrong did go wrong for the Boston Red Sox, who picked up right where they left off in September. Three chances for the Sox to get on the win column were all wasted, with each loss featuring its own problems from lack of offense to bullpen implosion. Now, the reeling Red Sox turn their attention to the Toronto Blue Jays.

Felix Doubront takes the hill for the Sox on Monday night for the first of a three game set against the Jays at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario. First pitch for Monday night's game is set for 7:30 p.m. EST, and the game will be broadcast on NESN and WEEI.

Doubront earned a spot in the starting rotation after a solid spring, in which he went 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA and 10 strikeouts in 16.2 innings pitched. Doubront appeared in 11 games last season for Boston, posting a 6.10 ERA with six strikeouts.

After the series opener, the Sox and Jay meet twice more on Tuesday (7:07 p.m. EST) and Wednesday (12:37 p.m. EST) before Boston returns home for Opening Day 2012 at Fenway Park against the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday evening. Daniel Bard is projected to get his first start for Boston on Tuesday while Jon Lester should start on Wednesday.
