First it was Mike Carp who voiced his desire to get out of Boston, now Felix Doubront wants change as well.

Speaking to, Doubront expressed frustration with the current situation in Boston and said he would be open to a trade.

"If something happens, it’s going to happen because it’s going to be the best for me," said Doubront. "I just want to be a starter and stay there. If I stay (in Boston), they have to know I have to be a starter. If I go, the other team is going to give me this chance to be a starter."

Even though spots in the rotation have opened up over the course of the 2014 season, the Red Sox have chosen to go with minor leaguers instead. 

"First of all, I’m not a reliever," continued Doubront. "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. That’s what I know right now at this moment. I’m an employee just following the order but they know I’m not happy. I don’t know what they’re going to do in the future but I’m don’t want to be a reliever the whole year, that’s what I know."
