Doubront has been used out of the bullpen for the past month and hasn’t started since June 20.
Doubront, who has a 2-4 record and 5.22 ERA in 10 starts this season, was adamant that he should be a starter.
“First of all, I’m not a reliever," Doubront said, via Masslive.com. "They know that. They just, you know, it’s hard but I don’t know what they’re doing. I know they’re not doing the right thing for me."
Red Sox manager John Farrell disagreed with Doubront’s assessment.
“There's a clear role for him in the bullpen and sometimes performance guides where you're slotted,” Farrell said. "Consistency has been something that's always been a focal point from start to start, or in any given inning. That still remains."
