Durbin Feltman: Cut by Boston
The Red Sox released Feltman on Tuesday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.
Since reaching the Triple-A level in 2021, Feltman has put up a less-than-impressive 5.97 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 75.1 innings out of the bullpen. The 2018 third-round pick will now look to carve a role for himself in another organization's farm system.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Durbin Feltman: Invited to major league camp
Feltman received an invitation to Boston's major-league training camp Saturday, Christopher Smith of Mass Live reports.
Feltman, a 2018 third-round pick out of TCU, was highly touted as a reliever that could reach the majors quickly with a high-90s fastball. However, after a promising first season in the organization, the right-hander ran into control issues in 2019, when he walked 5.5 batters per nine innings and his velocity dipped. Feltman described the year to Smith last September as a fluke, while pitching coach Paul Abbot attributed it to heightened expectations. The 24-year-old reclaimed his form in 2021 and displayed an increase in velocity, though it was still lower than his days at TCU. Feltman posted a 2.96 ERA, 1.065 WHIP, 10.8 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9 over 51.2 combined innings at Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Durbin Feltman: Could reach majors
Feltman has been mentioned as a possible in-season addition to the Red Sox's bullpen this season, Michael SIlverman of the Boston Herald reports. The 21-year-old reliever made his debut on the big-league side of camp Thursday, striking out two, walking one and picking off a runner in an inning against Detroit.
Feltman was a third-round pick (100th overall) out of TCU in 2018 and dominated at three stops last season, finishing out at High-A Salem. "Good, good, good awareness, that's good right there," manager Alex Cora said. "First big league outing, he goes out there, he fell behind three hitters, but you can see the stuff. That last one, it was a good play. Game on the line, he didn't panic, stepped off, got the out, and we got the tie." The Red Sox will have Feltman, who turns 22 in April, continue along a traditional path, exposing him to Double-A and Triple-A before entertaining thoughts of bringing him to Boston later in the regular season....
