Rangers | Neftali Feliz optioned

The Texas Rangers optioned RP Neftali Feliz (elbow) to minor league camp Tuesday, March 25, so that he can continue his recovery from Tommy John surgery. Also, the team re-assigned RPs Aaron Poreda and Rafael Perez to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: Those who assumed Feliz would fall back into the closer role immediately to start the season turned out to be wrong. Joakim Soria will open as Texas' closer. Feliz's velocity just wasn't what they were hoping for, so they'll let him iron out those kinks in the minors. He won't automatically get the ninth-inning gig back once he's back to peak form, though, unless Soria struggles mightily before then. You can safely drop Feliz in mixed leagues.
