The Los Angeles Dodgers are signing veteran reliever Neftali Feliz to a minor league contract, USA Today reported Tuesday.

The 2010 American League Rookie of the Year was designated for assignment by the Philadelphia Phillies last week after making his first major league appearances since 2017.

Feliz, 33, allowed four runs on four hits in two relief appearances with the Phillies, striking out two and walking one batter in one inning. The right-hander is 0-1 with a 36.00 ERA this season.

An All-Star in 2010 as the closer for the Texas Rangers, Feliz owns a 21-20 record with 107 saves and a 3.57 ERA in 359 games (seven starts) with the Rangers (2009-15), Detroit Tigers (2015), Pittsburgh Pirates (2016), Milwaukee Brewers (2017), Kansas City Royals (2017) and Phillies.
