Rangers activate closer Neftali Feliz from DL

Neftali Feliz is back in the bullpen for
the Texas Rangers.
The Rangers activated their hard-throwing closer from the
disabled list Friday before the opener of their weekend series
against the New York Yankees.
Feliz last pitched for the Rangers on April 20 before going on
the DL with right shoulder inflammation. He pitched an inning for
Double-A Frisco on Wednesday night.
Texas optioned catcher Taylor Teagarden to Triple-A Round Rock.
In eight appearances before being sidelined, Feliz had five
saves in five chances with a 1.08 ERA.
Feliz set a major league rookie record with 40 saves last season
when Texas went to its first World Series. The right-hander was the
AL rookie of the year.
