Houston Astros pitcher Michael Feliz will pitch Monday for the Quad-Cities River Bandits as he works his way back to the major leagues, joining Colin Moran in making Midwest League rehab assignments.
Currently working his way back from a shoulder injury with a string of rehab outings that started last Tuesday with Corpus Christi, Feliz is scheduled to pitch for the River Bandits in a 1 p.m. game against Wisconsin at Modern Woodmen Park.
Feliz has a 12-3 record in 93 major-league bullpen outings for Houston, arriving in the major leagues in 2015 one season after he compiled an 8-6 record in 25 games for Quad-Cities.
"It's a great sign of how much the Astros value their relationship with Quad-Cities that they are giving our fans a chance to see major-league players play for the River Bandits and how they feel about the facilities and field here,'' River Bandits owner Dave Heller said. "We're excited to have these opportunities.''
Houston third baseman Colin Moran has played for Quad-Cities since Thursday. He was not in the lineup, though, Saturday when the River Bandits opened their final regular-season homestand against Wisconsin.
Moran, who has split time between the Astros and their AAA Fresno affiliate the past two seasons, is working his way back from a face injury.
The two rehab assignments are the first in three years for Quad-Cities.
