Blue Jays sign left-hander Felix Doubront

Released by the Cubs earlier this week, left-hander Felix Doubront has signed a minor-league deal with the Blue Jays according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com.

Doubront had agreed to a one-year, $1.925 million contract with the Cubs to avoid arbitration in January, but because those deals are only partially guaranteed they owed him just $473,000 upon the release.

He had a rough spring training and in general hasn’t lived up to the potential he showed early on with the Red Sox a few years ago, but Doubront is capable of being a decent back-of-the-rotation starter or middle reliever.
