The Rangers assigned Feliz to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Spin: Feliz was removed from contention for the Rangers' closer job over the weekend, and it now appears that he has been removed from the active roster altogether. The reason for Feliz's demotion is not immediately clear, but since he would have been nothing more than a middle reliever on the big league club, it's possible the Rangers sent him down to stretch him as a starter. Expect an update on Feliz's next step as more details become available.
