Feliz secured his 10th save of the year after throwing a perfect ninth inning Tuesday against the A's.

Feliz turned in a perfect ninth inning to record his ninth save in the Rangers' 2-1 win over Atlanta on Friday night.

Feliz earned his seventh save of the season Monday while giving up a hit in a 2-0 win over the Mariners.

Feliz is 7-for-8 in save opportunities, but the lack of strikeouts and velocity lost after coming back from Tommy John surgery is a little worrisome for a closer.

Feliz nearly blew the save Wednesday against Miami, giving up two solo home runs and walk while striking out two.

Feliz came in with the Rangers up three but a one-out home run by Jared Saltalamacchia followed a lead off home run by Marcell Ozuna to bring the Marlins within one. After walking Christian Yelich, Feliz got Donovan Solano swinging to escape with the win.

Feliz struck out both batters he faced Wednesday to earn his fourth save of the season.

Following a hiccup in his last appearance Sunday, Feliz settled down and was sitting between 93-95 mph with his fastball. The ninth-inning job in Texas is Feliz's to lose, and he'll need to continue throwing his fastball in the mid-90s in order to push his strikeout rate up from the current 4.5 K/9 mark.

Neftali Feliz picked up save No. 3 with a quick, seven-pitch inning against the Yankees on Wednesday.

Even though he topped out at 92 mph tonight, Feliz struck out Mark Teixeira on three pitches and got Carlos Beltran to hit a first-pitch popup. Chase Headley then got ahold of a slider, but first baseman Adam Rosales went up and made a leaping catch, ending the game. Feliz's stuff still isn't where we'd like, but the results have been excellent so far.

Neftali Feliz pitched a perfect ninth on Monday for his second save since being shifted into the closer's role.

That's the good news. Less encouraging is that Feliz's fastball was coming in at 91 mph after often touching 93-95 mph in his previous couple of appearances. It didn't hurt him, but hopefully, it's not a sign of things to come.

Neftali Feliz notched his first save since 2011 in Friday's win over the Athletics.

Back in the closer role after the Joakim Soria trade, Feliz worked around a hit and a walk to deliver a scoreless ninth inning. The 26-year-old doesn't have the same raw stuff he had prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery, so we're a bit skeptical about his ability to keep the job, but the Rangers don't have much to lose at this point. Pick him up in all formats.
