Rangers report: Inside pitch

The Neftali Feliz experiment appears to be short-lived.

Manager Ron Washington indicated Tuesday that Feliz will be the closer this season. He is scheduled to pitch three innings Wednesday, which sounds more like what a closer would do. It wasn't clear why the Rangers would want Feliz to pitch three innings in spring training if he's going to be the closer, but Washington said he's being used that long just so he can throw all of his pitches.

Feliz, who set an MLB rookie record with 40 saves in 2010, was a starter until shortly before his promotion to the majors in 2009. It wasn't clear whether his declaration Monday that he'd rather be the closer was a factor in the decision.

Left-hander C.J. Wilson and right-hander Colby Lewis are the only starters who are guaranteed rotation spots. There are seven candidates for the other three spots: Alexi Ogando, Matt Harrison. Dave Bush, Tommy Hunter, Derek Holland, Tanner Schepper and Michael Kirkman. Two other possible candidates, Brandon Webb and Scott Feldman, are injured.
