Feliz Placed on 15-Day DL

Feldman likely to take spot in rotation



    The Texas Rangers have placed right-handed pitcher Neftali Feliz on the 15-day disabled list.

    Replacing Feliz in the lineup will likely be Scott Feldman.  The Rangers also called up RHP Yoshinori Tateyama from Round Rock.

    Feliz, 24, is suffering from an inflammed right elbow and was scheduled to pitch Wednesday in Seattle.

    Feliz has gone 3-1 with a 3.16 ERA (15 ER/42.2 IP) in 8 games/7 starts for Texas this season.  The club’s 5th starter to begin the year, he last pitched on Friday at Houston (4.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R-ER, 5 BB, 6 SO, 101 pitches/50 strikes), taking a no decision in the Rangers 4-1 victory, the Rangers said in a news release Monday.

    Feliz has gone 3-1 with a 3.02 ERA (14 ER/41.2 IP) in his 7 starts in 2012, his first season in the rotation.
