After an uninspiring outing against Baltimore in Tuesday's 5-2 loss, Amalie Benjamin is reporting that Felix Doubront will be held out for the rest of the series with a minor pectoral strain.

It's not a serious injury at all, which is somewhat surprising given how the season has been going, but enough to keep the Sox cautious with the up-and-coming lefty in these relatively meaningless games.

Unfortunately, this probably means that Sox fans will have to see more Okajima when it comes to lefties this series. But hey, there's always draft positioning, right?
