Scott Feldman has become sort of a forgotten man in Texas and missing part of the regular season and the Rangers’ entire playoff run with a knee injury and beginning this year on the disabled list.
However, he was their Opening Day starter last season after going 17-8 with a 4.08 ERA in 2009 and T.R. Sullivan reports that Feldman threw four scoreless innings in an extended spring training game yesterday and “could be getting close” to a minor-league rehab assignment.
Feldman didn’t pitch nearly as well as his 17 wins in 2009 would suggest, but he’s a 28-year-old pitcher with a 4.73 ERA in 78 career starts and the Rangers could definitely use another mid-rotation starter to eat some innings. Not to mention the fact that they’re paying him $4.4 million this season and owe Feldman another $6.5 million in 2012.
