Felix Doubront made the A’s rotation in spring training but he didn’t make it into the season. On Opening Day the Athletics placed him on the 15-day disabled list with an elbow injury.

The A’s first described the injury as a left elbow sprain, but the team just announced that Doubront will have reconstructive surgery on his UCL tomorrow. That’s Tommy John to you and me.¬†That means that Doubront will be out until the middle of next season.

Doubront has pitched six years in the bigs, compiling a record of 31-26 and an ERA of 4.89. A swingman, Doubront has started 85 of his career 118 games. Tough break.
