Rangers Place Closer Feliz On DL

Apr 24, 2011 8:09 AM EST

The Rangers have placed closer Neftali Feliz on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

The injury isn't considered serious, but it further hampers the team's bullpen.

Feliz said he first started feeling tightness behind his shoulder before a series against the Yankees and pitching in the cold weather at Yankee Stadium made it worse.

"I don't feel good about it," he said, "but I know that it is good for me and it's the best for me to take a couple of weeks. It's a long season."
