FRISCO, Texas --There is one more pitching outing left for the Rangers prior to the start of the 2012 regular season.

Weather permitting, the Rangers expect starter Neftali Feliz to pitch a simulated game, 60-65 pitches, at the Ranger Ballpark this morning. The session should end around 9:30 a.m., and then Feliz will join his teammates at a banquet.

Feliz is scheduled to pitch Tuesday vs. Seattle.

Manager Ron Washington said the young starter's simulated game should be the finishing touches to make sure he's ready for the 2012 season.

"Yes because last time he did close to 90 [pitches] and we got him where we wanted to get him," said Washington, alluding to Feliz's last start of the spring. "I think he did a good job of making adjustments. He's coming along. The first inning, last time out, he had out there was rough. He got out of it with minimal damage, and then the next three innings he [looked] pretty good using his stuff."

Here's the rotation to start the season, with the opposing pitcher:

Friday-Saturday, Rangers vs. White Sox
Monday-Thursday, Rangers vs. Mariners
