Unconditional Release Of LHP Felix Doubront Announced On Saturday

On  last Saturday  the  Cubs  officially  announced LHP  Felix Doubront  unconditional  release. Following  the 2015 season,  the Cubs  and  the Doubront  had  to  use  all  the  means   possible  to  avoid arbitration  when  the  two sides  came  to  conclude  and  agreed  on to  a  salary  of $ 1.925 million as  the  salary for  the 2015  season  with  the  team.
Through  this agreement  with  Doubront, the  Cubs  are  saving  up  to  $ 1.452  million on  their  part.

After the  four  spring  games, Doubront  gave up  nine earned  run  on 17  hits over  the  seven  innings. He had only pitched in relief. During  the  beginning  of  the camp, he  was  taken  as  the fifth  starter  spot,  though  he  did  not  still  manage  to  get  to spring  start.

Reviewing  on  Doubront’s games  in  the  previous  season, he  was  with a  5.54  ERA  in 21  games  that  are  14  starts  when  with  the  Red  Sox  and  Cubs.
After  the Cubs  granted  the  left-hander Doubront  the  release  they  still  owe  him 45  days  termination pay,  that  is  about    $ 473,000  which  they  had  agreed  in  a contract  they signed  for $1.925 million.

Now the  Cubs  spring  training  roster  stands  at 38  players  only with RHP Jacob  Turner, RHP Dallas  Beeler, OF Chris Denorfia  and  LHP  Tsuyoshi  Wada  being  expected  to  start  the season on  the disabled  list. Though  the  Cubs  have nine  more  decisions  to make between  the  date  and the  Opening  Night.
The  Cubs  produced the  roster  spot  required for  LHP  Phil  Coke with  the  Saturday’s roster  move.

Tsuyoshi  Wada, made  slow  progress  this spring  because  of  the leg issues  he  was  having, he  threw 42  pitches  in   simulated game  on Sunday.
