News: Feliz and the Rangers agreed to a one-year, $4.125 million contract to avoid arbitration, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Feliz figures to open 2015 as the Rangers' closer, but while he posted an 1.99 ERA over 31.2 innings last year, he managed a strikeout rate of just 17.2 percent. His velocity was way down from its 2010 peak, so it would be wise to keep an eye on spring training reports.
