Neftali Feliz

One day after admitting that he’d prefer to remain a closer rather than join the rotation the Rangers announced that Neftali Feliz will pitch out of the bullpen tomorrow against the A’s.

That doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve given up on making him a starter, as Feliz is scheduled to go well beyond a closer’s workload by throwing three innings in relief and plenty of starters get bullpen work early in spring training.

However, as T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com writes: “It’s pretty clear they see him being their closer again this season.”
