Another change in the Red Sox bullpen today as Felix Doubront has made his way up to Boston. And while there's no official announcement of a counter move, both Scott Lauber and Mike Silverman  say that Dennys Reyes--and his locker--are nowhere to be found.

If Reyes is gone and not just on his way to the disabled list, then that's an awfully quick cut after just four outings. Still, those appearances were pretty bad, with Reyes giving up three hits, two walks, and hitting two batters in the process. Most recently, he failed to record an out against the Cleveland Indians while throwing just one strike.

Felix Doubront, 23, was one of the Sox' fastest rising prospects last year after dominating in both Portland and Pawtucket en route to making his major league debut, getting two spot starts for the Red Sox and adding some solid bullpen work.

While many expected that Doubront could start the year with the team, he came into camp not in the best of shape, and ended up being shut down for a couple of weeks with a sore elbow. He did not pitch in the Paw Sox' season opener yesterday, and so should be good to go when necessary.
