The Cincinnati Reds have designated right-handed reliever Michael Feliz for assignment, as first reported by Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer. We wrote about it on Sunday evening, wondering what move that the team would make with regards to Feliz (and Tejay Antone).
Cincinnati picked up Michael Feliz on waivers from Pittsburgh on May 14th. The team’s bullpen was struggling and Feliz had a 2.35 ERA in the first seven games of the season for the Pirates with just one walk and eight strikeouts. He struggled with the Reds in May and early June, though – culminating in a 4-hit, 5-run appearance against St. Louis in which he didn’t record an out before hitting the injured list. A month later he went on a rehab assignment, but it didn’t last a full week before he was recalled from it because his arm was not responding to the outings well.
