ESPN’s Richard Durrett and other beat reporters for the Texas Rangers are reporting this afternoon that 2010 Rookie of the Year Neftali Feliz prefers to close again for the 2011 season. Durrett has this quote from Jon Daniels –
“We’re going to continue to keep him stretched out. He’s going to get his work in. Maybe something changes along the way. We’ve always said that he’s the closer until something changes. It’s intriguing to think about what he could do as a starter, but there’s no timeframe either. It may be something that never materializes, it may happen at any point in time. Even if it’s not this spring, I don’t think it limits his ability to do that in the future.”
