Pirates' Michael Feliz: Recalled by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

Rookie Davis (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list and Nick Kingham was designated for assignment Saturday, opening up a spot in the bullpen for Feliz. The right-hander will be limited to a low-leverage relief role, and his 8.25 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in 12 major-league appearances in 2019 make him an unappealing fantasy option.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

Feliz had an awful outing as the opener Friday, giving up five runs on four hits and a walk while recording just one out. The 25-year-old has allowed 11 runs over 12 major-league innings this season, though nine of those runs came in a pair of ugly appearances.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Disastrous in opener role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz (2-1) allowed five runs on four hits with a walk while recording just one out and taking the loss as an opener Friday against the Dodgers.

The 25-year-old's first appearance as an opener didn't go so well. The only out Feliz recorded was on a hard line drive, and he gave up a double and a grand slam while facing only six batters. Feliz has an 8.25 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 12 innings this season. With this performance, it seems highly unlikely we'll see him in the opener role again any time soon.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Opening Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz will serve as the opener Friday against the Dodgers, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Feliz will make the first "start" of his major-league career Friday, with Steven Brault likely to follow as the primary pitcher. Feliz has a 4.63 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 16:8 K:BB through 11.2 innings this season.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Struggles against Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz allowed an earned run on one hit and a walk in one inning against Arizona on Monday.

He needed 29 pitches (including 17 strikes) in his one inning Monday. This follows a disastrous outing last Wednesday when he walked four batters, allowed four runs and recorded just one out (on 33 pitches) against Texas. Feliz initially strung together four straight scoreless outings following his recall to Pittsburgh, but it seems as though he's already reverted back to his ineffectiveness of 2018.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Pitches well Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz earned his first relief win of 2019, hurling a scoreless inning against Oakland on Saturday. He walked one batter and struck out two in the 6-4 victory.

He will likely be presented with an opportunity to serve in high-leverage situations, especially with Keone Kela's shoulder injury and Richard Rodriguez's ineffectiveness. Feliz struggled mightily in his first season with Pittsburgh in 2018 (5.66 ERA, 1.51 WHIP in 47.2 innings), but he's off to a better start this year with five strikeouts in 3.2 scoreless innings.

April 28, 2019 11:12 AM
Pirates' Michael Feliz: Called up by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

Feliz has a 5.28 ERA in 168.2 innings of relief at the big-league level. That number is far out of line with his 3.80 FIP and his 3.50 xFIP, and he owns a strong 30.6 percent strikeout rate to go with a high (but not terrible) 9.6 percent walk rate. Chris Archer was placed on the 10-day injured list with right thumb inflammation in a corresponding move.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday.

Feliz struggled to a 5.66 ERA in 47.2 frames for the Pirates last season. He remains on the 40-man roster, so he'll be an option when injuries strike Pittsburgh's bullpen.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

August 23, 2018 01:04 PM
Pirates' Michael Feliz: Heads back to Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

July 27, 2018 05:00 PM
Pirates' Michael Feliz: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Season-long struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Since returning from the disabled list in early July, Feliz has allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks in six innings.

Feliz's 10.7 K/9 is below his career mark (12.3), while a 4.2 BB/9 is higher than his career average (3.7). In addition, a 79.7 contact rate percentage represents the worst number among his four seasons. With a 5.35 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 38.2 innings, the 25-year-old has proven to be one of the team's weak bullpen links. He's fallen from the preseason setup man for Felipe Vazquez to a low-leverage arm ranking no higher than fifth among Pittsburgh relievers.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Returns from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day disabled list Saturday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Feliz was at a "no-throw status" as of June 27, so he has made significant progress over the past week-plus. The 25-year-old has a 5.51 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with 39 strikeouts over 32.2 innings this season.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Could play catch soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Feliz (shoulder) is at a "no-throw status," but could be cleared to play catch in the upcoming days, Erin Fish of MLB.com reports.

Feliz was placed on the disabled list Sunday and looks like he'll miss more than the minimum 10 days, though perhaps not much longer beyond that. Prior to landing on the DL, Feliz had given up 15 runs (14 earned) over 12.2 innings in his last 11 appearances, prompting the Pirates to remove him from a key setup role.

June 24, 2018 11:04 PM
Pirates' Michael Feliz: Heads to disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation Sunday.

Feliz has been struggling lately, posting a 9.95 ERA over his last 11 appearances. He had recorded a stellar 0.90 ERA over his previous 21 outings. The Pirates will hope the downturn in his performance was injury-related. Clay Holmes was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding move.

Pirates' Michael Feliz: Snaps slump Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz struck out two batters in a scoreless eighth inning Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

The hard-throwing righty had allowed at least one earned run in each of his last six outings, giving up 12 total earned runs in 5.2 innings. While Feliz has registered 11 holds, he's compiled an ugly 6.08 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 26.2 innings.

April 21, 2018 05:36 PM
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 (7.1 innings). He's picked up three holds and could flip flop roles with the Pirates' 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 dictate his success.
