Rangers RHP Neftali Feliz, who is attempting to convert back to being a starter after 2-plus seasons in the bullpen, has met once with former Cy Young Award winner Pedro Martinez about the process and the duo will get together for a throwing session sometime in the next month.

Martinez also transitioned from the bullpen to the rotation and had a similar pitching repertoire to Feliz. Martinez developed one of the most devastating changeups in major league history to supplement his hard fastball. Any young power pitcher - particularly with a good changeup - is compared to Martinez. For pitchers with that repertoire of Latin American lineage, the comparisons are even more prevalent.
