Feliz to the bullpen at Oklahoma City
The Rangers are moving top pitching prospect Neftali Feliz to the bullpen at Triple A Oklahoma. It could lead to a promotion to the Rangers at some point similar to what they did with Derek Holland.
“We’d like to see if he’s an option to help the Major League club in that role,” general manager Jon Daniels said. “He’s scheduled to throw an inning there tomorrow. We still feel he may start for us in the future but we’re going down that road first.”
Feliz is 3-5 with a 3.86 ERA in 13 starts at Oklahoma. He has pitched 60 2/3 innnings and allowed 59 hits and 27 walks with 55 strikeouts. Daniels said he has been looking for ways to strengthen the Rangers bullpen.
