Pirates' Michael Feliz: Providing solid relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz walked one batter and struck out a pair in a scoreless eighth inning Friday against Philadelphia.

Since surrendering four earned runs without retiring a batter on Opening Day, Feliz has strung together eight scoreless outings (7.3 innings). He's picked up three holds and could flip-flop roles with the designated eighth-inning reliever, George Kontos, in the near future.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Makes quick rebound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz struck out one batter and walked two in a scoreless eighth inning Monday against Minnesota.

He's picked up two holds in as many days after pitching ineffectively Opening Day. The Pirates would like Feliz to settle in as their seventh-inning bridge to George Kontos and Felipe Rivero. As a result, he'll likely pick up plenty of strikeouts and holds, though fastball command will ultimately determine his success.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Earmarked for high-leverage role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Tuesday that Feliz and George Kontos would handle most of the high-leverage work in front of closer Felipe Rivero this season, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Aside from a two-inning outing March 7 against the Blue Jays in which he surrendered three home runs, Feliz has looked dominant this spring, conceding just one run while striking out eight batters over his other eight frames. With a career 12.7 K/9 mark in the majors, Feliz has never been lacking in upside, but his issues with the long ball prevented him from settling into a key setup role in a deep Houston bullpen. With fewer impact arms in Pittsburgh's relief corps, Feliz will have a better opportunity to establish himself as a reliable back-end piece, though he won't be a serious ninth-inning challenger with Rivero enjoying plenty of job security on the heels of a breakout of 2017 campaign.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Serves up three homers Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz covered two innings and allowed three hits -- all solo home runs -- in a 21-pitch appearance in Wednesday's 13-4 Grapefruit League loss to the Blue Jays.

Feliz had conceded just one hit and sported a 8:1 K:BB over his first four innings of the spring, but he may have hurt his case for a key bullpen role to open the season based on Wednesday's outing. Though he's ridden his mid-to-upper-90s fastball to K/9 rates above 13 both of the past two seasons, an inability to keep the ball in the yard -- he has surrendered a combined 18 home runs over that same span -- never allowed Feliz to settle into full-time setup work during his time in Houston. Until Feliz proves he can limit the damage on flyballs, it may be difficult for him to gain the trust of Pirates manager Clint Hurdle in the late innings.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Slated for key relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz is expected to serve as a bridge or setup man, though his showing in spring training will help determine his specific duties, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Acquired in the Gerrit Cole trade, Feliz has posted 13.2 K/9 and 13.1 K/9 in 2016 and 2017, respectively. The 24-year-old dealt with shoulder injuries last summer and staggered to a 5.63 ERA in 48 innings, courtesy of a 4.1 BB/9 and 1.56 WHIP. If the hard-throwing righty (96.2 mph fastball avg) can improve his control then he could serve as an eighth-inning setup man for closer Felipe Rivero.
