Following a disappointing stint at Auburn, Felix transferred to Troy and split time between the outfield and the mound. He came on strong this spring, pitching in relief and flashing a fastball up to 93 mph and a plus breaking ball. Felix has drawn comparisons to Mike Hampton for his athletic frame. His arm works well from a high three-quarters slot, which enables him to get good downward break on his curveball. He will throw his curveball in any count, and it's a swing and miss pitch with nasty late break. He pitches at 89 mph and showed good command of all of his pitches this season, though in the past he struggled to throw strikes. This season he began mixing his pitches and changing speed off his fastball, which elevated his stock. He shows an adequate changeup. His ceiling is that of a set-up man, and as long as he can continue to throw strikes Felix figures to fill a role as a reliable reliever.
