Texas will keep Feliz closing instead of starting

Neftali Feliz will keep closing games
instead of starting them for the AL champion Texas Rangers.
The Rangers have settled on their starting rotation and Feliz,
who set a major league rookie record with 40 saves last season,
will remain the closer. Feliz had been stretched out this spring in
case they decided to use the hard-throwing right-hander as a
starter.
Texas opened spring training knowing left-hander C.J. Wilson and
Colby Lewis would be their top two starters after Cliff Lee's
departure. The rest of the rotation announced Thursday includes
Tommy Hunter, and left-handers Matt Harrison and Derek Holland.
Wilson will start the season opener April 1 at home against
Boston.
