Neftali Feliz will not be in the starting rotation for the Rangers this year. He will continue his role as closer. In 2010, Feliz set a rookie record with 40 saves in the Rangers run to the World Series.
He was considered to be a candidate in the Rangers starting rotation this season, but after the bullpen struggled throughout much of the spring, the Rangers have decided to keep him in his role as closer.
The rotation announced by the Rangers on Thursday includes, CJ Wilson, Colby Lewis, Tommy Hunter, Matt Harrison and Derek Holland.
