Neftali Feliz getting his velocity back
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rangers reliever Neftali Feliz was reportedly throwing 94 mph to 96 mph in a minor-league game Thursday, according to the Ranger Rundown.

Feliz was sent down early in the spring due to concerns about his velocity during camp. He's still working through rehab from Tommy John surgery, which may have been the reason for his lowered velocity this spring.

Neftali Feliz headed to the minors
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz will begin the season in the minors, according to MLB.com.

Feliz will continue his rehab from Tommy John surgery while down in the minors. The team recently announced Joakim Soria would open the year as the closer, and Feliz has been dealing with reduced velocity all spring. There's still a chance he plays a major role with the club this season, but it's clear he needs to show a little more before he's called up again.

Joakim Soria nails down closer spot for Rangers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Rangers have named former Royals standout closer Joakim Soria as the winner of their battle for that role. He had been in competition with Neftali Feliz, who had struggled and is no guarantee for a roster spot.

Soria has not served as a closer since 2011. He peaked with Kansas City from 2008 to 2010 when he converted 115 of 124 save opportunities.

The Rangers are seeking to find the same effectiveness at that spot that Joe Nathan brought. He has since signed with Detroit.

Neftali Feliz still working on velocity vs. Giants
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rangers closer candidate Neftali Feliz tossed a scoreless ninth inning on Thursday against the Giants, but only topped 94 mph, per the Dallas Morning News.

Manager Ron Washington has expressed some concern over his velocity this spring. He topped 92 mph in his past outing. Six of his nine fastballs on Thursday reached 93 or 94 mph. He has allowed two runs over five innings pitched this spring.

"Once again, it was the same," Washington said. "He's still trying to get the velocity back. The more he throws, the stronger he will get."

Rangers still mulling options at closer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers manager Ron Washington said he hasn't made a decision on who will fill the closer's role, and even suggested he could go with a committee approach, per MLB.com. Neftali Feliz, Joakim Soria and Tanner Scheppers are all competing for the job.

"We haven't made a decision," Washington said. "You'd always like one guy to do it but if I have to use all three to help shut down a game I'll do it."

Though, it could come down to a two-man race between Feliz and Soria as Scheppers continues to work as a starter.

"Scheppers is getting in shape to be a starter," Washington said. "That's all I've got on my mind with Scheppers. When we make our decisions on who will be starters, we'll make it so that those who are not going to be starters will have time to make adjustments."
