Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - The Texas Rangers avoided arbitration with
Neftali Feliz, signing the pitcher to a contract for the 2013 season.
The Rangers' erstwhile closer, Feliz was moved to the starting rotation in
2012 and made seven starts before being placed on the 15-day disabled list on
May 19 with right elbow inflammation.
The 24-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery on Aug. 1 and will begin the
upcoming campaign on the DL as he continues to rehab from the procedure.
Feliz compiled 72 saves from 2010-11.
