BOSTON (AP) - Red Sox pitcher Felix Doubront missed the cutoff for salary arbitration eligibility by two days.
The major league service time required for arbitration this offseason was 2 years, 122 days, according to calculations by the commissioner's office and the players' association.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Chris Nelson was the last player to make it among the 28 with enough service time. Seattle pitcher Charlie Furbush was the player closest to qualifying who missed, falling one day short. On Boston's active major league roster all season, Doubront has 2 years, 120 days of service.
