Dodgers' Neftali Feliz: Clears waivers
Feliz recently cleared waivers and returned to the Dodgers' Triple-A roster, Oklahoma City Dodgers broadcaster Alex Freedman reports.
Feliz was DFA'd by the organization late last week, but he has since returned to Triple-A Oklahoma City. The right-hander has given up only one hit and no runs in three innings for the big club this season, so there's a decent chance that he could be called back up before the end of the campaign....

Dodgers' Neftali Feliz: Designated for assignment
Feliz was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Feliz tossed two scoreless innings across two relief appearances after his contract was selected Monday, but he'll be cast off the 40-man roster once again. Andre Jackson was recalled in a corresponding move to fill his spot in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Neftali Feliz: Contract selected by Dodgers
Feliz's contract was selected from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Feliz was designated for assignment in late August but reported to the Triple-A club after he went unclaimed on waivers. The right-hander tossed five scoreless innings across three appearances since he returned to the minors, and he'll be available as a low-leverage reliever for the Dodgers.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Neftali Feliz: DFA'd Tuesday
The Dodgers designated Feliz for assignment Tuesday.
Feliz threw a scoreless, one-strikeout inning Sunday in his only appearance with Los Angeles. Five years removed from his last season of effective relief work, the righty isn't likely to be a hot commodity on waivers. That being said, two teams have already employed him in 2021, so a third is not out of the question. Julio Urias (calf) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move....

Dodgers' Neftali Feliz: Effective in Dodgers debut
Feliz pitched a perfect inning against the Mets on Sunday, striking out one batter.
It was a quiet but effective debut for the right-hander, who was called up to the big club last week. He entered the game with the Dodgers trailing by three runs in the eighth inning and set the side down in order on 11 pitches (nine strikes). The appearance was Feliz's first in the majors since June 30.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Neftali Feliz: Contract selected by Dodgers
Feliz's contract was selected by the Dodgers on Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Feliz signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers in early July, and he posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 18.2 innings across 13 appearances (one start) at Triple-A Oklahoma City. The right-hander should serve mainly as a low-leverage reliever with the major-league club.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Neftali Feliz: Lands with Dodgers
Feliz and the Dodgers agreed Tuesday on a minor-league contract, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
The 2010 American League Rookie of the Year is moving on to the seventh MLB organization of his career after a short-lived stint in Philadelphia. After posting a microscopic 1.26 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 14.1 innings at Triple-A Lehigh Valley to begin the season, Feliz received his first call-up to the majors since 2017 in late June. He struggled in both of his relief outings with Philadelphia (four earned runs allowed across one inning) and was ultimately cast off the 40-man roster. The Dodgers are hoping that he can rediscover his early-season form at Triple-A Oklahoma City before potentially providing a boost to the big-league bullpen in the second half.... See More ...

Neftali Feliz: Elects free agency
Feliz cleared waivers and elected free agency Saturday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Feliz made his first two major-league appearances since 2017, but he struggled mightily and gave up four runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two in one inning. He was designated for assignment Thursday, and he'll choose to become a free agent rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A. The 33-year-old began the season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but it's not yet clear whether he'll land another contract during the second half of the 2021 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Neftali Feliz: Cast off 40-man roster
The Phillies designated Feliz for assignment Thursday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Feliz's first stint in the big leagues since 2017 went about as poorly as possible when he was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley last weekend. Over his two appearances out of the Philadelphia bullpen, Feliz recorded only three outs while surrendering four earned runs on four hits and a walk. The 33-year-old right-hander will likely head back to Triple-A if he goes unclaimed off waivers in the coming days.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Neftali Feliz: Contract selected by Philly
Feliz had his contract selected by the Phillies on Friday.
The 33-year-old inked a minor-league deal with Philadelphia in December and is now poised to see his first big-league action since 2017. Feliz, who posted 72 saves for Texas between 2010 and 2011, has pitched well at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season with a 1.26 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 23:6 K:BB over 14.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
Neftali Feliz: Reaches MiLB deal with Phils
Feliz agreed Wednesday with the Phillies on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Hector Gomez of Deportivo Z 101 reports.
The 32-year-old right-hander has 107 career saves to his name, but he's been off the fantasy radar since 2017, his most recent season in the big leagues. Feliz remains unlikely to find fantasy relevance in 2021, but the Phillies were intrigued enough to bring him in for look this spring on the heels of his impressive showing in the Dominican Winter League. Over his 13 relief appearances with Aguilas Cibaenas, Feliz posted a 3.55 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 19:6 K:BB and six saves over 12.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Neftali Feliz: Signs minors deal with Mariners
Feliz is signing a minor-league deal with the Mariners.
The veteran right-hander last pitched for Triple-A Reno in 2018 while with the Diamondbacks organization. Feliz's last major-league action came a season prior, when he generated a 5.48 ERA and 1.37 WHIP across 46 innings over 49 appearances with the Royals and Brewers. He'll likely be utilized as organizational depth at Triple-A Tacoma and will be called upon if injuries hit the Mariners' bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Neftali Feliz: Reassigned to minors camp
The Diamondbacks reassigned Feliz to their minor-league camp Tuesday, David Adler of MLB.com reports.
It was an easy decision for the Diamondbacks to cut Feliz with his fastball velocity sitting in the low-90s during spring training and the right-hander coming off an ugly outing Tuesday against the White Sox in which he surrendered five runs on five hits while failing to record an out. The 29-year-old will begin the season at Triple-A Reno if the Diamondbacks don't part ways with him.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Neftali Feliz: Arrives in camp after delay
Feliz (personal) made his first appearance of the spring Saturday, allowing a hit and striking out one batter in his only inning.
Feliz had been delayed from arriving at camp due to visa issues, but it seems all of that has been sorted out. He finished the 2017 season with a 5.48 ERA in 46 frames, so he'll need to impress in Cactus League action if he wants to begin the season in the Arizona bullpen as a non-roster invite to camp....

Diamondbacks' Neftali Feliz: Delayed by visa issues
Feliz has not arrived at spring training yet due to issues with his visa, Nick Piecoro of AzCentral.com reports.
This typically doesn't pose much of a problem for players, but it will put him a bit behind the rest of the pitchers in camp. One he does return, Feliz will need to perform well in camp if he wants to crack the Opening Day roster given the 5.48 ERA he produced last season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Neftali Feliz: Signs minor-league deal with Arizona
Feliz signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Sunday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
Feliz struggled during the 2017 season. He split time with the Royals and Brewers, throwing a lofty 5.48 ERA and 1.37 WHIP over 49 games (46 innings) between the two locations. He could appear in the majors for Arizona if the club needs help in the bullpen, but it's unlikely he'd see high-leverage situations.... See More ... See Less
Neftali Feliz: Released by Royals
Feliz (finger) was released by the Royals on Friday.
The Royals cleared a roster spot for Sam Gaviglio, who they claimed off waivers from Seattle as a corresponding move. Feliz is still reportedly dealing with a finger injury, so he may have to wait until this upcoming offseason to catch on with another club.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Neftali Feliz: Lands on 10-day DL
Feliz was placed on the 10-day DL with ulnar nerve palsy.
He is apparently feeling some numbness in his ring and little fingers, and it is unclear how much time he will end up missing. He gave up six earned runs over his last five innings, so perhaps the issue led to his recent poor performance. Eric Skoglund was recalled from Triple-A Omaha to take his place in the bullpen....
