Red Sox's Michael Feliz: Back with Red Sox
Feliz signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Feliz appeared in 21 big-league games during 2021 with the Red Sox, Reds, A's and Pirates, and he finished with a 7.20 ERA across 20 innings. He'll face long odds of making Boston's Opening Day roster in spring training.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Michael Feliz: Designated for assignment
Feliz was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Monday.
It's been a busy season for Feliz, who's now been designated for assignment by four separate organizations, having previously earned that dubious honor for the Pirates, Reds and Red Sox. He's only thrown 20 innings between those four organizations and has struggled to a 7.20 ERA, though both his 24.4 percent strikeout rate and 7.8 percent walk rate are fine marks. Luis Barrera was called up to take his place on the roster.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Michael Feliz: Added to major-league roster
Feliz was added to the Athletics' 28-man roster ahead of Tuesday's game against Seattle.
Feliz was claimed off waivers from Boston on Monday and now he's set to join Oakland's bullpen for the final 12 games of the regular season. The right-hander has already appeared in 20 big-league games with the Red Sox, Reds and Pirates this season, posting an unimpressive 7.32 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 22:6 K:BB across 19.2 innings. Reliever Miguel Romero was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas to open up a spot on the 28-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Michael Feliz: Claimed by Oakland
Feliz was claimed off waivers by the Athletics on Monday.
Feliz was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Friday, and he'll now join his fourth organization of the 2021 campaign. He doesn't have any minor-league options remaining, so he's expected to be added to the Oakland bullpen in the next day or two. The Athletics designated catcher Aramis Garcia for assignment Monday to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the reliever.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Michael Feliz: Designated for assignment
Feliz was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Friday.
Feliz joined the big-league roster Sept. 6 and ended up allowing two earned runs on four hits across 5.1 innings. With Chris Sale (illness) and Matt Barnes (illness) returning from the COVID-19 injured list Friday, Boston has opted to remove Feliz from the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Michael Feliz: Contract selected
Feliz's contract was selected by the Red Sox on Monday.
Feliz has already pitched at the big-league level for both the Pirates and Reds this season but hasn't found much success. In 14.1 innings, he's allowed 15 runs (14 earned), good for an 8.79 ERA. He'll give Boston a low-leverage relief option but is unlikely to stick around once the team's COVID-19 outbreak has passed.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Michael Feliz: Joins Boston on MiLB deal
Feliz signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Saturday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Feliz was cut loose by the Reds on Wednesday at the completion of his rehab assignment, and he'll latch on with a new organization a few days later. The right-hander last pitched in the majors in early June before going down with an elbow injury, but he appeared in 13 rehab games in the minors over the past month and posted a 5.27 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 16:1 K:BB over 13.2 frames. He'll report to Triple-A Worcester in hopes of joining the Red Sox down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
Michael Feliz: Cut loose by Cincy
The Reds released Feliz on Wednesday.
Cincinnati didn't have a spot in the bullpen for Feliz after his minor-league rehab assignment came to an end earlier this week, prompting the organization to activate him from the 60-day injured list and designate him for assignment. After the 28-year-old reliever went unclaimed off waivers, the Reds will allow him to pursue opportunities elsewhere rather than sending him to Triple-A Louisville. Before he went on the IL with an elbow injury, Feliz made 16 big-league appearances for Pittsburgh and Cincinnati this season, posting an 8.79 ERA and 1.81 WHIP in 14.1 innings.... See More ...

Reds' Michael Feliz: Designated for assignment
Feliz (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list and designated for assignment Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Feliz had been out since early June with an elbow issue. He's healthy now, having made 13 rehab appearances over the past month, but the Reds don't have a spot available for him, so he'll be available for other teams to claim off waivers. His career 5.38 ERA over parts of seven seasons at the big-league level means he may have a good chance to pass through waivers unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Shifts to 60-day injured list
Feliz (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Feliz has already been out for 60 days, so the transaction has no impact on his return timeline. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Mike Moustakas (heel) to return from his own trip to the 60-day injured list, though the Reds will have to clear another spot soon, as Feliz appears to be closing in on a return himself. He's made five rehab appearances after overcoming a brief setback in mid-July.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Moves rehab to Triple-A
The Reds transferred Feliz's (elbow) rehab assignment from High-A Dayton to Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday.
Feliz made his first rehab appearance July 24 at Louisville, but his last three outings came with Dayton. He covered an inning in each of those appearances, giving up five earned runs on four hits and a walk over three innings. Feliz should be ready to return from the 10-day injured list within the next week or two, and he'll likely work in a middle-relief role for Cincinnati once he's activated.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Continuing rehab this weekend
Feliz (elbow) has worked through his minor setback and will resume his rehab assignment this weekend, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
The righty has made three rehab appearances with Triple-A Louisville, striking out four batters and walking one in three scoreless innings. Feliz will have missed about two weeks due to the setback, so he may require a couple more rehab innings, suggesting that he'll be activated sometime next week.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Working through minor setback
Feliz (elbow) had his rehab assignment briefly paused due to a setback, but he's back with Triple-A Louisville, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Feliz hasn't made a rehab appearance since July 9. His velocity was down and he wasn't recovering as expecting, so the Reds elected to shut him down briefly, but the setback doesn't seem to be a significant one.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Excelling during rehab assignment
Feliz (elbow) has tossed three scoreless innings across three appearances for Triple-A Louisville since beginning a minor-league rehab assignment July 3. He's allowed one hit and one walk while striking out four across those outings.
Feliz has been on the 10-day injured list for about five weeks with a right elbow injury, but he looks like he'll be ready to rejoin the Reds' active roster shortly after the All-Star break. The 28-year-old has one save to his name on the season, but he's otherwise largely been relegated to lower-leverage situations in his other 15 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Rehab assignment imminent
Feliz (elbow) has reported to Triple-A Louisville to begin a rehab assignment, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Feliz was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow injury June 8, but the rehab assignment is usually the final step of the recovery process. It's not yet clear how many rehab games the right-hander will require, but he appears to be on track to return from the injured list in the near future.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Heads to injured list
The Reds placed Feliz on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow injury Tuesday.
The specifics of his elbow injury aren't yet known, so it's currently unclear how long Feliz is expected to be out, though he'll be eligible to return June 16. He allowed five runs and failed to record an out during his last outing against St. Louis on Sunday, so it's very possible his struggles could have been related to his hurt elbow. Joey Votto (thumb) was reinstated from the IL in a corresponding roster move.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Notches one-out save
Feliz struck out the only batter he faced Friday, picking up a save over the Cardinals.
Feliz was brought in with runners on the corners and two outs and quickly struck out Paul Goldschmidt to escape the jam. It was the first save chance of the season for the 27-year-old and he won't see them very often. He owns a 5.65 ERA through 14.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Back from injured list
Feliz (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list Wednesday.
The 27-year-old was placed on the injured list without a designation Tuesday, and his quick return to the active roster indicates he was on the COVID-19 IL for unspecified reasons. Regardless, Feliz will be available for Thursday's series opener at St. Louis.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Placed on injured list
Feliz was placed on the injured list Tuesday with no injury designation, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Further reports figure to reveal what Feliz is dealing with. If it's COVID-related, there will be no required minimum stay on the injured list. Otherwise, the righty reliever will miss at least 10 days.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Michael Feliz: Claimed by Reds
Feliz was claimed off waivers by Cincinnati on Friday.
Feliz had been designated for assignment by the Pirates on Sunday after allowing two earned runs in 7.2 innings of relief work, striking out eight while walking just one. He could be a serviceable option for the Reds going forward but is unlikely to pitch in a high-leverage role.... See More ... See Less
