Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz has not allowed a run in his last nine outings for Triple-A Round Rock and has notched six saves during the stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Feliz continues to work on his mechanics in the minors, but he appears to be slowly rounding into form. If he can continue to show consistent results, he could rejoin the Rangers' bullpen after the All-Star break.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz has no structural damage

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:04:43 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz (elbow) was diagnosed with general soreness in his right elbow after being examined by Dr. Keith Meister Thursday, April 24, and he doesn't have any structural damage to his ligaments or tendons. Feliz will be placed on the minor league disabled list, though, and will likely resume throwing later this week.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Feliz will avoid his second Tommy John surgery, for now, but his return to the majors will be delayed by this setback.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz shows nice velocity in first outing

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 14:06:00 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz struck out the side on 16 pitches in his first outing with Triple-A Round Rock Thursday, April 3, and he hit 96 mph on the radar gun, according to team officials. Feliz was averaging 91-92 mph with his fastball during spring training. He got two of his three strikeouts on swings and misses.

Fantasy Tip: The high velocity is music to the Rangers ears, but Feliz will have to show that he can sustain that before the club thinks about bringing him back to the majors. At some point, though, we expect Feliz back and pitching important innings out of Texas' bullpen. When that'll be, however, is unclear.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz optioned

Tue, 25 Mar 2014 12:26:25 -0700

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.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz not a lock to make roster

Sat, 22 Mar 2014 12:24:05 -0700

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said RP Neftali Feliz, who lost the competition for the closer's job to RP Joakim Soria, is not guaranteed to make the 25-man roster. He has posted a 4.50 ERA this spring and opponents are batting .308 against him. Feliz is not under consideration for a spot in the starting rotation and is battling for one of the three remaining spots in the bullpen.
