RHP Neftali Feliz will return to the mound Tuesday eight days after a stiff shoulder gave the Rangers a scare.

They aren't, however, throwing caution to the wind.

Feliz will pitch in a Double-A game Tuesday evening so that if he experiences any more soreness, the club would be able to keep his potential time on the DL to a minimum. Monday was the earliest a DL move could be backdated. A player appearing in any "A" game after Monday must be placed on the DL on the date of the injury.
