Cubs acquire struggling LHP Doubront from Red Sox

CHICAGO (AP) Theo Epstein was the first person to take a chance on Felix Doubront. Now he is going to give the struggling left-hander another opportunity.

The Chicago Cubs acquired Doubront from the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday in exchange for a player to be named. Epstein, the president of baseball operations for the Cubs, was Boston's general manager when Doubront signed with the Red Sox as an undrafted free agent in 2005.

Cubs manager Rick Renteria said he didn't know very much about Doubront, and the team said it would announce in the next couple days where he would begin with the organization. Doubront pitched against the Cubs on July 2, allowing three runs and four hits in 1 1-3 innings of relief.
