Despite blowing the save on Monday and allowing two runs in the seventh inning last night, Rangers manager Ron Washington says he’s sticking with Neftali
Feliz as his closer. When asked if that was the case, Washington said “Yes. What’s changed?”
I’d say that “what’s changed’ is that Feliz is having a lot of trouble maintaining his velocity and command pitching on a short turnaround suggesting that, just maybe, he’s more suited to starting. But hey, starting pitching prospects are a dime a dozen. Finding a decent relief pitcher is a once-in-a-lifetime thing.
