Neftali Feliz needs season ending Tommy John surgery

Neftali Feliz needs season ending Tommy John surgery

Jul 31, 2012

Texas Rangers fans were given some bad news after the team acquired Ryan Dempster from the Cubs, as it was announced by General Manager Jon Daniels that pitcher Neftali Feliz will require season ending Tommy John surgery for a torn UCL ligament in his throwing elbow.

This news comes on the heels of the announcement that fellow pitcher Colby Lewis would require Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy owners should drop Feliz in all formats, as even his keeper value is tarnished due to the fact that he will miss half of the 2013 session as well.

Feliz posted a 3-1 record on the season, with a 3.16 ERA in 42.2 innings of work.
