Box Score Bits: Feliz throws in relief
Yes, that was Texas Rangers right-hander Neftali Feliz pitching in relief Wednesday, allowing a Raul Ibanez home run in the seventh inning. Don't worry; like Daniel Bard earlier this week, it's not uncommon for young pitchers to see in-game work in relief while waiting for their next starts. Feliz remains on track for perhaps 30 starts. Bard is another story.
New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte allowed four runs (three earned) in five innings for Double-A Trenton on Wednesday, telling reporters his strength and command are still lacking. Pettitte hasn't pitched in the majors since 2010. With Phil Hughes getting pounded again Wednesday (four runs in 2 2/3 innings), he could be replaced by Pettitte after two or three more starts. Add Pettitte now in deep leagues before the rush.
