Pittsburgh Pirates RP Neftali Feliz recorded the final two outs against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, July 4, to record his first save of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Mark Melancon had pitched in three straight games, so Feliz was called upon to close it out. Melancon has enjoyed another strong season and is in no danger of losing the closer's role.

Free-agent RP Neftali Feliz (Tigers) agreed to a one-year, $3.9 million deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, Jan. 6.
Fantasy Tip: Feliz could be a low-end flyer that pays off if the Bucs trade Mark Melancon. Feliz has NL-only value in the interim.

Detroit Tigers RP Neftali Feliz had the first chance to lock down a save with RP Bruce Rondon being sent home Tuesday, Sept. 22, and he blew the chance, allowing two hits and a run in an inning of work against the Chicago White Sox.
Fantasy Tip: Despite a 6.45 ERA on the season, Feliz had settled down recently for the Tigers before blowing the save last night. He had allowed three earned runs and seven hits while walking just one and striking out seven in 8 2/3 innings this month. While his first crack at save duties in Rondon's absence didn't go well, he could still have a leg up on Alex Wilson. If you're desperate for saves this late in the game, speculate on Feliz.

The Detroit Tigers have signed free-agent RP Neftali Feliz (Rangers) to a major league contract. He will join the team prior to their game against the Minnesota Twins Saturday, July 11.
Fantasy Tip: It's not a surprise to see Detroit taking a flier on a reliever who has experienced previous success, although Feliz hasn't been the same since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2012. His fastball averaged 96.3 mph before the injury but has only averaged 93.7 mph since. Owners in AL-only fantasy leagues may want to keep tabs on him, although it is not yet known what role he will be used in.

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz elected free agency instead of an outright assignment to the minors, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Feliz is sure to catch on with another team, but there aren't many with high-leverage openings. Send him to the waiver wire in most leagues, but watch where he lands.

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz (side) was recalled from Class AAA Round Rock Thursday, July 2.
Fantasy Tip: Feliz had been on an extended rehab assignment which began Saturday, June 6. He was working his way back from surgery Saturday, May 23, to remove an abscess on his right side. Feliz will return to the bullpen and potentially work his way into save chances. However, since Shawn Tollenson recorded his first save Wednesday, May 20, he has a 1.65 ERA, 11 total saves and a firm grasp on the closer role. Feliz is nothing more than a desperation add in the majority of formats at this point.
