Doubront pitches well in relief debut

Felix Doubront threw two scoreless innings in his debut as a reliever in Pawtucket's 5-4 win over Durham Tuesday. He pitched the sixth and seventh innings for the Paw Sox and struck out two while allowing just one hit. His other four outs came on the ground. He threw 14 of his 18 pitches for strikes, adding to an already impressive pitching line. 

 

Doubront had made 113 starts in the Red Sox organization, including two at the major league level, before making his first appearance out of the bullpen in Tuesday's win. The hope is that Doubront can gain experience out of the bullpen at the Triple-A level before being utilized in that role by Boston during the upcoming stretch run.

Lowell activated, will start at 1B; Youk to DL

At long last, Mike Lowell has been activated by the Red Sox and will make the start at first base in Tuesday night's matchup with the Indians. In a corresponding move, Kevin Youkilis was put on the 15-day disabled list after injuring his hand in at-bat during Monday's loss. Victor Martinez had originally been placed at first base with Kevin Cash catching, but Terry Francona put up a second draft of Tuesday's lineup after the roster moves were made. Below is the final draft of the Sox starting lineup:

 

RED SOX

 

Scutaro, 6

McDonald, 8

Martinez, 2

Ortiz, DH

Beltre, 5

Lowell, 3

Lowrie, 4

Hall, 7

Kalish, 9

Ellsbury goes 3-for-5 in Pawtucket

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, back in Triple-A Pawtucket for a third rehab game, went 3-for-5 with a pair of singles (one to left, one to right), a double, a run scored and an RBI. He added a pair of lineouts as the designated hitter for the PawSox.

 

In three games with the PawSox, he is 7-for-14 (.500). The Red Sox said yesterday that Ellsbury would play in Pawtucket on Tuesday and then be re-evaluated on Wednesday to determine what the appropriate next step would be in his return from his non-displaced rib fractures.

Farrell on D&H: Pap still one of MLB's best

Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell joined the Dale & Holley show Tuesday afternoon and talked about the much-maligned Boston bullpen. Farrell remains confident that the existing group of relievers can do what's needed to get the Sox back into the AL East race. "Right now, we feel like this is the group that will close the 6 1/2-game game that we're staring at," he said.

 

As for closer Jonathan Papelbon, who blew a save Sunday for the fifth time this season, Farrell said: "While it's easy to point to some of the miscues that might have been there, he's still one of the top three or four closers in the game, and I'd hate to see where we'd be without him."

 

Speaking about Tuesday's night's starter, Josh Beckett, Farrell said the team brought him along slowly and now has no reason to be concerned about his back. "When he goes to the mound, we look at him as if the back issue wasn't there...
