Neftali Feliz fans three batters in minor league rehab inning

0 Comments

Rangers closer Neftali Feliz made a one-inning minor league rehab appearance on Wednesday evening for the Double-A Frisco RoughRiders.

It was his first rehab outing. And it will be his last.

According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the hard-throwing right-hander struck out three straight batters after giving up a leadoff single and is likely to rejoin the Rangers’ bullpen in time for Friday’s series opener against the Yankees.

Feliz opened the season with five straight saves and a 1.08 ERA over his first eight appearances.

Darren Oliver and Arthur Rhodes have been taking care of the ninth inning in the youngster’s absence.
