Looking a little like he'd been awakened too early from a nap, Neftali Feliz shuffled to the mound at Dr Pepper Ballpark Monday to face hitters for the first time in two months.

He looked in mid-season form.

In other words, the velocity was impressive, especially for a two-month layoff due to an elbow injury, and the command erratic. Feliz hit 96 mph on the radar gun a couple of times in his 40-pitch, two-inning outing for the RoughRider and pitched regularly at 93-95 mph. After a 29-pitch first inning, which left some doubt as to whether he'd make it out for the second, he relied on his two breaking pitches heavily to retire San Antonio hitters in order in the second.
