Rangers activate Feliz, hold extra pitcher

The Rangers activated closer Neftali Feliz, as expected, from the 15-day disabled list Friday. Instead of sending a relief pitcher down the minors in a corresponding move, they instead optioned catcher Taylor Teagarden -- so they're carrying eight relief pitchers. This was done because starter Alexi Ogando is still dealing with the blister in his right index finger. He's expected to make his scheduled start Sunday, but just in case he's unable to go, the Rangers have an extra pitcher on the roster. (Foul Territory )

Ogando is wearing a fake fingernail to help alleviate the effects of the blister, but it could still be an issue. The problem with blisters in fingers for pitchers isn't pain at all. It's the ability to control their pitches with normal effectiveness. In Ogando's case, it hasn't much bothered him yet. He first developed the blister in his third start and is still 3-0 with a 2.17 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in six starts. Since he hasn't thrown a bullpen session since his last start, however, it's possible the blister is getting worse.

As for Feliz, he's likely to return to dominant form immediately. He's closed all five of his save chances this season with a 1.08 ERA and six strikeouts in 8 1/3 innings. His activation slides Darren Oliver back into his setup role and helps alleviate the loss of Darren O'Day.
