A Developing Ace?
Felix Doubront has been one of the Red Sox best pitchers so far this year. He leads the team in wins, ERA, and strikeouts while being second in WHIP. He has been throwing a lot of pitches and looks like he will be held to an innings limit this year, but the potential is there for him to develop into a much better pitcher. He has shown four above-average pitches which has contributed to his success. I said last year that I thought he could make the leap to the starting rotation this year. It looks like I was correct.
