Rangers | Neftali Feliz to face hitters

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz (elbow) is scheduled to face hitters for the first time at Triple-A Round Rock Thursday, Aug. 8. He'll throw again Saturday, Aug. 10. His fastball is hitting 94-95 mph on the radar gun, and he'll likely rejoin the team next month. Feliz will make at least five more minor league appearances before the team considers bringing him back.

Fantasy Tip: Feliz will help the team out in the back of the bullpen when he returns, but there's pretty much zero chance of him pitching in the ninth over Joe Nathan. Feliz won't have much fantasy value when he returns.
