Red Sox Designate Reyes For Assignment, Activate Doubront

In another move before Opening Day, the Red Sox designated lefty reliever Dennys Reyes for assignment and activated Felix Doubront from the 15-day disabled list.

Reyes has been terrible since joining the Sox. He failed miserably at his primary job: getting lefthanded hitters out. He made four appearances over the first six games, allowing three runs on two hits and two walks in 1.2 innings. In his latest appearance, he hit two batters and walked another, throwing just one strike in 12 pitches.

The Sox then activated lefty Felix Doubront from the disabled list (his stint was retroactive to spring training). I would expect Doubront to be up with the big club only for a short time, as the team may envision him more as a starter and have two semi-capable lefties (Hideki Okajima, Rich Hill) brewing in Pawtucket.
