With Friday night's game being rained out between the Texas Rangers and Detroit Tigers, it means that the Rangers will likely need Scott Feldman to make a spot start on Wednesday against the New York Yankees.
So far this year Feldman has only pitched 2 1/3 innings this year and has not thrown more than 20 pitches against major league since March 26, but Feldman said he is ready:
"I'll be ready for it," said Feldman, who pitched 1 1/3 innings in Thursday's game. "There's only so much I can do. When I'm not in the game, I try to stay ready by throwing bullpens. Last night, I was able to see some hitters up there, so that's always nice to get in some games."
Feldman made 78 starts from 2008-2010, but he moved to the bullpen late in 2010 after struggling as a starter and has been a reliever for the Rangers ever since.
