Feliz agreed to a one-year deal with the Pirates on Friday to avoid arbitration, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports. Feliz appeared in 47 games with the Pirates during his first year with the organization, logging a 5.66 ERA and 1.51 WHIP with 55 strikeouts in 47.2 innings. Looking ahead, he will have to cut down on his 4.3 BB/9 in order to work in higher-leverage situations, assuming he begins the 2019 season on the Opening Day roster.
Feliz was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports. Feliz owns a lackluster 6.05 ERA and 1.56 WHIP across 41.2 big-league innings this season, though he does have 47 strikeouts over that span. He posted a similarly poor 7.20 ERA across 10 innings with Indianapolis. The 25-year-old righty will provide bullpen depth down the stretch, though he'll likely be limited to lower-leverage work.
Feliz was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Feliz saw his first bit of action at the major-league level since July when he came in against the Braves on Tuesday, but he couldn't shake his recent struggles and gave up three earned runs on three hits and one walk in one inning of relief. Across 18 appearances since May 23, he's logged a 9.14 ERA and 1.94 WHIP with 12 walks in 21.2 innings. The Pirates will make a subsequent roster move prior to Friday's series opener in Milwaukee.
Feliz was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports. Feliz was sent to the minors in late July after struggling with a 5.53 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 40.2 innings for the Pirates. The 25-year-old returns to the majors with Pittsburgh needing some fresh arms after the bullpen covered 6.1 innings during Friday's 13-10 loss to the Giants.
Feliz was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday. This move does not come as a major surprise, as Feliz has a 5.53 ERA and 1.50 WHIP, despite fanning 47 in 40.2 innings out of the big-league bullpen. He'll look to get into a groove at Triple-A before likely rejoining the big-league club in a few weeks.
