Player Notes
Neftali Feliz picked up save No. 3 with a quick, seven-pitch inning against the Yankees on Wednesday.

Advice: Even though he topped out at 92 mph tonight, Feliz struck out Mark Teixeira on three pitches and got Carlos Beltran to hit a first-pitch popup. Chase Headley then got ahold of a slider, but first baseman Adam Rosales went up and made a leaping catch, ending the game. Feliz's stuff still isn't where we'd like, but the results have been excellent so far.

Neftali Feliz pitched a perfect ninth on Monday for his second save since being shifted into the closer's role.

Advice: That's the good news. Less encouraging is that Feliz's fastball was coming in at 91 mph after often touching 93-95 mph in his previous couple of appearances. It didn't hurt him, but hopefully, it's not a sign of things to come.

Neftali Feliz notched his first save since 2011 in Friday's win over the Athletics.

Advice: Back in the closer role after the Joakim Soria trade, Feliz worked around a hit and a walk to deliver a scoreless ninth inning. The 26-year-old doesn't have the same raw stuff he had prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery, so we're a bit skeptical about his ability to keep the job, but the Rangers don't have much to lose at this point. Pick him up in all formats.

Mon, Jul 28 Rotoworld
Neftali Feliz is expected to take over as the Rangers' closer in the wake of the Joakim Soria trade.

Advice: Soria was dealt to the Tigers on Wednesday night for right-handed pitching prospects Jake Thompson and Corey Knebel. Feliz is still working to regain his dominant raw stuff, but he owns a cool 2.61 ERA and 0.77 WHIP in 10 1/3 innings of relief since rejoining the Rangers' active roster on July 4. The 26-year-old right-hander needs to be owned in all standard fantasy leagues even though his save opportunities may be few and far between for a Rangers team that has clearly mailed it in.
