After the signings, everyone on Boston's 40-man roster is now under contract.

Doubront is still being considered for the fifth spot in Boston's starting rotation. The 23-year old threw two-plus innings Thursday against the St. Louis Cardinals, allowing two runs, three walks and three hits while struggling with his control.
