Feliz made his Tigers' debut Saturday against the Twins. He pitched a scoreless eighth inning with one hit and one strikeout.

The former top closer with the Rangers was designated for assignment July 3 and became a free agent after going unclaimed on waivers.

At just 27 years of age, Feliz will likely draw interest from several teams looking to add depth to the bullpen. Cotillo reports that Feliz forfeited the remainder of his salary this year to explore the open market.
