Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Neftali Feliz's first rehab start, expected to be Sunday in Triple-A Round Rock, will be two innings with the idea that he's going to stretch out as a starter.

That means Feliz, who is returning from elbow inflammation, will build innings from there before returning. Feliz threw live batting practice to Mitch Moreland, Alberto Gonzalez and Brandon Snyder before the club departed for Seattle on Thursday. He threw 54 pitches.
