Agreed, as long as you're not committing anything of value to keeping him (i.e. a 10th round pick or something).
This would crush his value for this year, at least at the ADP he's being drafted at. Feliz is currently ranked at #69/$15 on Yahoo (crazy high already), ahead of starters like Weaver/Gallardo/Liriano. If he's going to get ranked as a SP, he's going to be at least four rounds later, at which point someone will certainly have drafted him.
Not that I was interested in drafting a closer in the sixth (or 10th) round anyway, but I think there's about a 0.0% chance I own Feliz in any league this year (or Wilson, or Marmol, or Rivera, etc, etc).
