#RedSox LHP Felix Doubront is working on mechanical changes in preparation for his next start:
Felix Doubront threw in the bullpen on Tuesday and will start on Thursday against Alex Cobb. The lefthander has been hit hard in his last two outings, giving up 12 earned runs on 23 hits over nine innings.
The Red Sox had Doubront skip a start to give him some time to work on his mechanics. John Farrell said Doubront has “direction issues” in his delivery.
“We felt like there are times when he starts going to home plate, he can be a little bit off line,” Farrell said. “That’s affected, I think, some of the overall consistency with location to his stuff. That’s what ‘s been worked on with the multiple bullpens that he and [pitching coach Juan Nieves] have gone through.”
