2019 Fantasy Outlook
Feliz underwhelmed in his first year with the Pirates after being acquired in the deal that sent Gerrit Cole to Houston, posting a 5.66 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in 47.2 innings of relief. After allowing four runs without recording an out in his first appearance for Pittsburgh, the righty turned in a 0.90 ERA and 26:6 K:BB over his next 21 appearances (20 innings). Unfortunately, things went downhill from there, as Feliz struggled to an 8.27 ERA and 4.9 BB/9 over his next 17 outings (20.2 innings) before being demoted to Triple-A in July. Feliz made a trip to the DL in the middle of that stretch due to shoulder inflammation and it's possible some of his struggles were tied to that issue. He experienced a slight decrease in velocity as the season progressed and walked too many batters (4.3 BB/9), making him a tough sell for fantasy as a middle-inning arm with no clear path to saves.
