NEFTALI FELIZ RUMORS

Rangers beat A's as Feliz records first save since 2011

A new starter and a not-so-new closer combined to lead the Rangers to a 4-1 win over the team with the best record in the majors Friday. Jerome Williams, released by the Astros earlier this month, held the potent Oakland Athletics to one run over six innings in his Rangers debut. Williams' effectiveness set the stage for Neftali Feliz to get his first save since Oct. 24, 2011...

Feliz returns to old role to save Rangers' win over Oakland

ARLINGTON, Texas -- A new starter and a not-so-new closer combined to lead the Rangers to a 4-1 win over the team with the best record in the majors Friday. Jerome Williams, released by the Astros earlier this month, held the potent Oakland Athletics to one run over six innings in his Rangers debut. Williams' effectiveness set the stage for Neftali Feliz to get his first save...

Neftali Feliz expected to take over 9th inning for Rangers in wake light of Soria trade

We’re late breaking this news of course, but it should be noted that with Joakim Soria dealt to the Detroit Tigers the Texas Rangers appear set to call on RP Neftali Feliz to resume 9th inning duties. Heading into the season there was some debate as to which pitcher would start the season in the stopper’s role but with Feliz dealing with arm issues the point was rendered moot...

Rangers deal pitcher Soria in significant surrender move, Neftali Feliz to close

In a story that could only happen to the 2014 woebegone Rangers, on Wednesday they lost a game to the grounds crew and got a head start on next year. Just as umpires were trying to rush the ineffective New York Yankees grounds crew into action as a hard shower hit in the fifth inning, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels was putting the finishing touches on a deal to send closer...

Rangers call up Neftali Feliz from Triple-A

Neftali Feliz has spent all season at Triple-A due to struggles coming back from Tommy John elbow surgery, but the Rangers feel he’s ready for the majors and called up the once-dominant closer. Feliz racked up 31 strikeouts in 28 innings at Triple-A, but he also walked eight batters and served up six homers on the way to a 3.14 ERA. That includes eight consecutive scoreless outings...

Rangers bring up Feliz from Triple-A

Right-hander Neftali Feliz, who went to spring training with plans to regain his job as the Texas Rangers closer, has finally earned his way onto the team's roster. The Rangers recalled Feliz from Triple-A Round Rock and sent right-hander Ben Rowen back to Triple A to make room for Feliz. Feliz battled through arm issues and inconsistency with the Express this season. He was...

Have the Rangers closed the book on Neftali Feliz?

It never made sense. This thought that Neftali Feliz would return to his fireballing form and seize the closer's role seemed like a farce. On Saturday, the Rangers finally accepted reality and admitted that Feliz is not prepared to play a meaningful role on this roster. Was this devastating news to Feliz? Well, that's impossible to know because the 25-year-old pitcher rarely...

Rangers set to improve quickly when Neftali Feliz returns

Generally speaking, I'm of the notion that the loss of a starting pitcher for anything less than a couple months does not have that large an impact on a team.  However, if that starting pitcher is the missing piece that can turn a rotation from being top-five in the league to number one overall, things change.  Neftali Feliz has been on the disabled list since the start of...

Neftali Feliz throws for first time since surgery

ARLINGTON, Texas Playing catch for a baseball player doesn't seem like that big of a deal. It was for Texas right-hander Neftali Feliz Friday. Feliz played catch for the first time since he had Tommy John surgery last August. He was at Rangers Ballpark as part of the team's winter pitching camp. Feliz said he was a little nervous playing catch but he's cleared...
