Neftali Feliz to DL

  • P Neftali Feliz placed on 15 day DL
  • P Yoshinori Tateyama recalled from AAA [ Link ]

Remarks: It would explain Neffy’s iffy outings lately.    Tateyema is not a direct replacement, just an “arm” replacement.  Word is that Scott Feldman will initially slide into the rotation, but whether we go with him, or make a move on Roy Oswalt who is hanging out there is unknown now.

Tateyama has been tearing it up in AAA this season, going 1-0 with a save, and a 0.54 ERA (1ER in 16.2IP).  Quite the line.  If it translates up here, then this is a major bonus!

This is a record for the team – we were still operating with the opening day 25 – it’s definitely a Rangers record going to May 21st and game 40 until you make your first roster move.  Wonder what the longest streak for all the teams is?
