2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Feliz spent most of 2016 as a reliever for the Astros, and pitched quite well over 65 innings. While his ERA was 4.43, he had a 1.18 WHIP and an outstanding 95:22 K:BB. Feliz has an electric mid-90s fastball and a nasty slider, so he only threw his changeup five percent of the time in 2016. The Astros have oscillated on whether or not they want to develop Feliz as a starter, and his changeup will need further development for him to be an effective major league starter. Reports are that Feliz will be working toward a starting role in the offseason, and may compete for a fifth starter role in spring training. Fellow reliever Chris Devenski threw more extended relief outings last year, and seems to initially be ahead of Feliz, although the team also brought in veteran right-hander Charlie Morton, who could earn the spot as well. Feliz's value will depend on his eventual role, but he's one of the more intriguing Astros arms to watch given his high-strikeout potential.

2016

Many times players who get a taste of the big leagues return to the minors with a sense of entitlement or bitterness from the demotion. That wasn't the case for Feliz, who had a few cups of coffee with the Astros last season before spending much of the year with Double-A Corpus Christi. Hooks pitching coach Doug Brocail praised the 22-year-old right-hander for his work ethic and composure on the mound, as he made 15 appearances (12 starts) for the team with a 2.17 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 70:20 K:BB over 78.2 innings. He also earned Texas League Pitcher of the Week honors in August. While Feliz made five low-leverage appearances out of the Astros' bullpen with poor results (7.88 ERA, 1.63 WHIP over eight innings), Houston continues to develop him as a starter. He's likely to open 2016 in that role with Triple-A Fresno.

2015

Feliz, 21, went 8-6 with a 4.03 ERA and 111 strikeouts in 25 games (19 starts) for Low-A Quad Cities in 2014. At 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, he's an imposing presence on the mound whose fastball reaches the mid-90s. His control (3.2 BB/9) needs improvement, but he'll get the opportunity to work on that in the hitter-friendly confines of the California League this season. How Feliz performs in that environment should give the Astros better insight into his future as a starter or reliever, but the organization thought enough of him to protect him from December's Rule 5 draft by adding him to the 40-man roster over the winter.
