Neftali Feliz Might Start As Soon As Tuesday

There's some good news on the Neftali Feliz front. Feliz, who was scratched from his Cactus League start on Monday because of his achy shoulder, might be ready to return to Cactus League action as soon as Tuesday.

Per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Feliz threw 27 pitches off a mound at about 75-80 percent effort level.

Pitching coach Mike Maddux said Feliz will throw a bullpen session on Sunday, and could make a start on Tuesday.

Feliz left his last start with right shoulder tightness. He had long-toss sessions on Thursday and Friday before getting back on the mound Saturday.

It's certainly encouraging, but we'll have to wait and see how Feliz' next bullpen session goes. It's certainly better to err on the side of caution, though, as Feliz had shoulder problems that forced him to the disabled list in 2011.
