Free-agent pitcher Neftali Feliz to join Tigers


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/11/2015) Free-agent relief pitcher Neftali Feliz will join the Tigers, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman is reporting.

Feliz chose to become a free agent after the Rangers designated him for assignment on July 3.

Feliz (1-2) has a 4.58 ERA with 16 strikeouts and nine walks in 19 2/3 innings this season.


Neftali Feliz chooses free agency after clearing waivers

Report: RP Neftali Feliz chooses to become a free agent


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/9/2015) Former Rangers reliever Neftali Feliz , who was designated for assignment on July 3, has elected to become a free agent, a source tells SBNation.com. Feliz will forfeit about $2 million as he looks to resurrect his career with a new team.

At 27 years of age, Feliz could certainly be an interesting option to a team in need of late-inning relief help. Injuries have derailed a once-promising career, but he does own a career 2.69 ERA in just over 260 innings of work. 


Rangers RP Neftali Feliz designated for assignment on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) Right-hander Neftali Feliz has been designated for assignment by the Rangers, following their 8-2 loss to the Angels on Friday. Feliz, who was the American League Rookie of the Year in 2010 when he saved 40 games, has struggled to stay heathy for the better part of his tenure with the Rangers.

In 2015, Feliz posted a 4.58 ERA in 19 2/3 innings of relief. He pitched two scoreless innings on Friday. However, the Rangers needed space on the 40-man roster for Matt Harrison, who is being activated from the 60-day disabled list, according to The Dallas Morning News

"It was a tough call," general manager Jon Daniels said, per MLB.com. "Mostly from the fact that Neftali has been on most of the great moments in franchise history. He is still young, talented and works hard. But the consistency wasn't there at this point and his role wasn't clearly defined. We'll see if we're able to trade him. He is going to pitch a while longer."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2015) The Rangers reinstated reliever Neftali Feliz from the 15-day disabled list Thursday. Feliz had been on the disabled list since late May due to abscess on his right arm.

Feliz spent a few weeks on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock. He went 0-1 with a 7.36 ERA in 11 innings. He had 11 strikeouts and four walks.


Report: Rangers RP Neftali Feliz could be trade target this summer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2015) When Rangers reliever Neftali Feliz is ready to return from his rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock, he could end up as a late-inning option for Texas. However, he could also finish the season with another team, according to Fox Sports.

Rival teams are showing interest in the 27-year-old reliever, who lost his closer's job earlier this season, and a trade is not out of the question, according to major-league sources.

Feliz is 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA in five relief appearances for Round Rock. He has six strikeouts and three walks in five innings.


Rangers' Neftali Feliz begins rehab assignment Saturday

Rangers don't plan to rush RP Neftali Feliz


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) The Rangers are in no hurry to bring back reliever Neftali Feliz, who is dealing with a bothersome abcess near his armpit that has sidelined him for almost two weeks, per the Dallas Morning-News

Feliz will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday and the team will take a wait-and-see approach as he also does some modifications to his delivery. 

"We are not going to fast-track him," manager Jeff Banister said. "He has made some adjustments to his setup and we're going to give him an opportunity to do what he needs to do so that when he comes back he can hopefully be that dominant guy he was for us."

Feliz is 1-2 with a 5.09 ERA and had three blown saves, causing him to be removed from the closer role. 


Rangers RP Neftali Feliz expected to start rehab on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Rangers have not declared how many rehab outings Feliz will need before being cleared to return to the club.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Feliz, who blew his third save of the year on Saturday, said he's not focusing on the disappointment with the adjustments in the bullpen.

"I'm going to work every day to be more consistent; that's my mentality," Feliz said. "I understand why they did this. Everybody has to be ready to pitch in different situations. I'm fine. I just want to do whatever I can to help the team win the game."

Rangers manager Jeff Banister: no roles set in bullpen


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Closer Neftali Feliz blew his third save of the season on Saturday against the Indians when he surrendered a three-run homer in the ninth. Tanner Scheppers and Shawn Tolleson both threw at the back end of the bullpen on Sunday, allowing one hit over three scoreless innings. 

"Brought all of our guys in, told each one of them, individually, collectively, that right now as we sit, nobody has a specific role, that we are going to find what is the best match for this bullpen, for this ballclub," Banister said to MLB.com. "We're going to continue to look at the hitters who are coming up each inning and what's the best fit or the best matchup with the best arm that we have out there at any given time."

Banister noted Feliz will fight to fight for his role.

"I didn't say that Feliz was not our closer," Banister said. "Every one of them are out there to pitch when we pick up the phone and call on them to be ready. … That was where we felt was the best place for Tolly to pitch."
