Neftali Feliz Injury Update: Texas Rangers Pitcher Out Through All-Star Break, Management Considering Roy Oswalt

The Texas Rangers are going to have to go a little longer than 15 days without right-handed pitcher Neftali Feliz, who was placed on the disabled list earlier Monday.

According to the MLBlogs Network, the inflammation in Feliz's elbow is going to hold him through the All-Star break. This, from T.R. Sullivan:

Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz could be sidelined until the All-Star break with inflammation in his elbow. Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine said Feliz will not throw for four weeks. Then he will begin a throwing program to rebuild arm strength. That will likely take him to the All-Star Break and beyond. Feliz first notified the Rangers of his shoulder discomfort after Saturday's start against the Astros. Feliz said an MRI on Monday showed no tear in the elbow but just inflammation.

General manager said the team is even considering signing Roy Oswalt and that "everything is on the table" because of the unexpected seriousness of this injury.
