It'll be tough to top Yu Darvish's performance on Friday, but an equally important member of Texas' rotation will take the mound Saturday night. Neftali Feliz, who has been battling shoulder stiffness this spring, will make his final Cactus League start on Saturday night when the Texas Rangers take on the Cleveland Indians.
Feliz will be making the start on three days rest, despite having missed time due to shoulder stiffness. Feliz appeared in a minor league game on Tuesday, throwing 68 pitches in four innings of work. In that outing, Feliz gave up three runs, one earned, on six hits while issuing a walk and striking out three.
If all goes well for Feliz and his shoulder on Saturday against the Indians, he'll open the season as Texas' fifth starter, and he'll make his first start in Arlington on Tuesday, April 10 against the Seattle Mariners.
