Neftali Feliz To Pitch In Minor League Game On Tuesday

It looks like Neftali Feliz will make a start on Tuesday after all. It just won't be against big league competition. Feliz will pitch in a minor league game on Tuesday, as per ESPN Dallas' Richard Durrett.

The logic and reasoning behind this decision is quite sound, as it seems like there's an increasing possibility that Feliz won't be ready to open the season with the Rangers.

Feliz has been bothered by stiffness in his right shoulder, which forced him to the disabled list last season. He came out of his Cactus League start last week after just three innings because of his achy shoulder.

If Feliz isn't ready to go for the start of the season, either Scott Feldman or Alexi Ogando could take his place in the rotation until he's 100% healthy.
