Jeff Banister: No defined roles for Rangers’ bullpen

4 Comments

Rangers closer Neftali Feliz blew his third save on Saturday when he let the Indians score three runs in the ninth inning en route to a 10-8 loss. He’s only 6-for-9 in save situations with a 5.51 ERA and a 15/7 K/BB ratio in 16 1/3 innings.

On Sunday, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that there are currently no roles in the team’s bullpen, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. That means that Feliz won’t necessarily be the go-to guy anymore when a save situation arises. Shawn Tolleson and Keone Kela have shown the best stuff of anyone in the Rangers’ bullpen thus far and figure to get some opportunities until Feliz rights his ship.
