News: Feliz blew his first save of the season Sunday against Seattle.
Impact: Not only did Feliz fail to convert Sunday's save opportunity, he also threw 47 pitches - a career-high in 197 relief appearances.
Rotowire: Apr 8 / 5:28a ET
News: Feliz recorded his first save of the season Tuesday in a win against the Athletics, striking out one batter and only needing 11 pitches.
Impact: Feliz is the clear-cut closer for the Rangers for now, but it will be important to monitor his performance going forward. The right-hander had some well-documented velocity issues last year and had pitched in a combined 44 games in his previous three seasons.
Rotowire: Mar 22 / 8:22p ET
News: Feliz reached 95 mph in his appearance Sunday and has yet to allow a run in four appearances this spring, the Rangers' web site reports.
Impact: Feliz doesn't have the flashy peripherals he did five years ago, but the increased velocity this spring from what he showed last September does bode well for a nice bounce-back season.
