Neftali Feliz will take a big step in his recovery from elbow problems by beginning a minor-league rehab assignment Sunday at Triple-A.
Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas reports that, if everything goes well, Feliz is also scheduled to pitch for Round Rock next Wednesday.
Because the Rangers have committed to bringing Feliz back as a starter his rehab assignment will take longer as he builds up the necessary arm strength to throw five-plus innings after sitting out the past two months.
