Neftali Feliz picks up his first save
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rangers reliever Neftali Feliz picked up his first save Friday against the Athletics. 

Feliz entered the game with a three-run lead in the ninth inning. He made things interesting, giving up a single and a walk. Feliz was able to work out of the jam, getting the final two outs without giving out a run.

It was Feliz's first save since 2011.

Neftali Feliz not an especially exciting pickup
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With Joakim Soria out of town, Neftali Feliz is back closing for the Rangers, which is seemingly great since he used to be a significant Fantasy contributor in the role.

But if you haven't kept tabs on him, this version of Feliz isn't quite the same as that one. This one is still working his way back from Tommy John surgery, averaging about 3 mph less on his fastball than that one. This one has also recorded just five strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings.

In fairness, they were 10 1/3 effective innings, so maybe questioning Feliz's pitching ability isn't the way to go here. But even if you assume he's as right as rain, he probably won't be as good as Soria was with his 2.70 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings. And pitching for a bad Rangers team, Soria ranked only 33rd among relief pitchers in Head-to-Head points leagues at the time of the trade, behind even non-closer Dellin Betances.

The Rangers may be the team least conducive for saves. Not only do they lose often, but they lose with bad pitching. So on the rare occasion they do win, the score typically isn't so close.

So Feliz may be a closer, but he's a closer with reduced stuff coming off major surgery for a team that won't give him any save opportunities. Sounds like Chad Qualls has met his match.

Neftali Feliz should get chance to pitch on back-to-back days
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers manager Ron Washington said Thursday he isn't certain if newly anointed closer Neftali Feliz can pitch on consecutive days yet. However, Washington feels Feliz will be up to the challenge when the time arises.

"I'm going to give him the ball and tell him to do what he feels he needs to do with it," Washington said, per ESPN. "This is what, Neftali's fifth year? I can't motivate Neftali. That (being the closer again) should motivate him enough. You got a chance to close and that's what it is, a chance."

Neftali Feliz returning to former role as Rangers' closer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The trade of Joakim Soria has created an opening at closer for the Rangers, and the team has decided to return Neftali Feliz to his former role.

The 26-year-old reliever, whose career was derailed in 2012 due to Tommy John surgery, has 74 career saves, including a career-high 40 in 2010.

"We'll give him a shot, he is the only one with experience," Rangers manager Ron Washington said, per MLB.com. "It will show if he can or he can't."

Neftali Feliz returns to Rangers bullpen
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock Friday, one day after pitching coach Mike Maddux told MLB.com he was nearing a return.

Feliz has yet to pitch in the majors this season, but had a 3.14 ERA in 28 2/3 innings as the closer at Round Rock.
