ARLINGTON, Texas -- Less than nine hours after Tommy John surgery, Texas Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz came into the clubhouse using a crutch and wearing a sling on his pitching arm.

Even though he can't do much of anything yet, Feliz was already talking about getting better and building strength so that he could return. The normal rehab time is 12 to 18 months.

"It's something that makes you feel bad," said Feliz through an interpreter when asked about his disappointment at having his season come to an end. "But there's nothing you can do about it. I just have to follow my rehab and try to get back as soon as I can."
