ARLINGTON (AP) – Texas Rangers closer Neftali Feliz has been put on the 15-day disabled list because of right shoulder inflammation.

The move was made before the Rangers played Kansas City on Saturday. The move is retroactive to Thursday, the day after the right-hander last pitched.

Texas purchased the contract of right-hander Cody Eppley from Triple-A Round Rock.

Feliz has five saves in five chances this season and an 1.08 ERA in eight appearances. Opponents have hit only .138 against him.

Last season, Feliz set a major league rookie record with 40 saves.

Eppley has pitched 8 1-3 scoreless innings in six appearances for Round Rock. He has converted all three save chances, including his last appearance Wednesday.
