The Texas Rangers have shut down right-hander Neftali Feliz, who was on rehab assignment with the team's Triple-A affiliate. It's unclear how long Feliz will be sidelined, as the Rangers have only said that he's considered day to day for the time being, according to Todd Wills of ESPN Dallas. At this point, the Rangers don't believe Feliz's setback is serious. They have diagnosed the ailment as triceps tendinitis, calling it a common issue for pitchers recovering from Tommy John surgery. Feliz experienced discomfort in his arm while warming up for Sunday's start for Triple-A Round Rock. In his latest appearance, Feliz logged 2 2/3 innings of scoreless work for Round Rock. He was supposed to pitch an inning on Saturday but wasn't able to go. The Rangers shut him down after Sunday's warm up session. It's been just over a year since Feliz underwent ligament replacement surgery. He hasn't appeared for the Rangers since May 18 of 2012, but the team is hopeful that they'll get him back at some point this season. Texas has already dealt with numerous injuries to its pitching staff this season, as Colby Lewis has been lost for the season to hip surgery and Matt Harrison and Nick Tepesch are currently on the disabled list.
