Feliz (finger) was released by the Royals on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The Royals cleared a roster spot for Sam Gaviglio, who they claimed off waivers from Seattle as a corresponding move. Feliz is still reportedly dealing with a finger injury, so he may have to wait until this upcoming offseason to catch on with another club.

Feliz was placed on the 10-day DL with ulnar nerve palsy.

EDGE Analysis

He is apparently feeling some numbness in his ring and little fingers, and it is unclear how much time he will end up missing. He gave up six earned runs over his last five innings, so perhaps the issue led to his recent poor performance. Eric Skoglund was recalled from Triple-A Omaha to take his place in the bullpen.

Feliz allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits and a walk while striking out two over an inning of work Tuesday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Entering Tuesday's outing, Feliz had been quite strong donning a Royals uniform since coming over from Milwaukee on June 25. He owned a 2.65 ERA with 12 strikeouts through 17 innings. Unfortunately, the Cardinals ruined that by smacking Feliz with his worst outing since the trade, and bumping his ERA to 4.00 as a Royal. Overall, he's buried in a talented bullpen, so the veteran doesn't offer much fantasy value anyway.

Feliz (personal) was reinstated from the paternity list prior to Monday's game against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Feliz was away from the Royals for the maximum three days while witnessing the birth of his third child. The Royals cleared a spot for Feliz in the bullpen by optioning Miguel Almonte to Triple-A Omaha. After a rough start to the season as the Brewers' closer that resulted in him losing his job before eventually being released, Feliz has enjoyed a nice renaissance with the Royals. He's tossed seven innings for the club, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six batters.

Feliz was placed on the paternity list Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reliever will step away to attend to the birth of his third child, allowing Miguel Almonte to be recalled as his replacement in the bullpen. Feliz owns a 2.57 ERA since being acquired by the Royals in June, mainly serving as a setup man behind Joakim Soria and closer Kelvin Herrera. He'll miss three days at the most.

Feliz agreed to terms with the Royals on Thursday, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

EDGE Analysis

The deal is still pending a physical, but all signs point to Feliz joining up with the Royals. Feliz was recently designated for assignment and released by the Brewers after a rough start to the year in which he worked a 6.00 ERA over 27.0 innings. Still, Feliz is just 29-years-old with a solid track record and an electric fastball that sits in the mid-to-high 90s. A move to a more pitcher-friendly ballpark ought to benefit Feliz's fantasy prospects, but unless the Royals move one of their high-leverage relievers, he's unlikely to see much in the way of save or hold opportunities.

Feliz was released by the Brewers on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

After clearing waivers, Feliz was let go by Milwaukee as the veteran reliever was unlikely to accept a minor-league assignment. The 29-year-old struggled to find success with the Brewers this season, compiling a 6.00 ERA and 21:15 K:BB across 27 innings. Although no team was willing to claim what was left of his $5.25 million contract, he'll likely catch on elsewhere for cheaper given his previous major-league experience.

Feliz was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers were incredibly patient with the struggling reliever all season, as he struggled to the tune of a 6.00 ERA and a 21:15 K:BB for the first-place team. He was usurped as the team's closer in mid-May, although he didn't improve much following his demotion, leading the team to finally cast him off the 40-man roster. Feliz has an electric arm and plenty of major-league experience, which could attract a lot of interest from other clubs while he's exposed to waivers. However, if he clears waivers, it's hard to see him accepting an assignment to the minors given how much time he's spent in the big leagues over the past few years.

Feliz tossed an inning and allowed an earned run in the Brewers' loss to the Cardinals in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader.

EDGE Analysis

Feliz is really struggling of late, giving up five earned runs in 4.0 innings over his last five appearances, and his usage has been limited to mop-up duty: he has appeared in just one game the Brewers have won since May 15. If he does not turn things around he could force the Brewers into making a roster move.

Feliz tossed two perfect innings of relief in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday's contest was only the third Feliz has appeared in since he ceded the closer's role May 12, but it represented a step in the right direction, as it was the first outing he did not allow a runner to reach base since April 26 -- a streak of 10 straight appearances. While Feliz has things turned back in the right direction, he was summoned Tuesday with the Brewers behind on the scoreboard, so he figures to keep working in middle relief for the time being.
