SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) - Scott Feldman allowed one run on three hits in his sixth spring training start, and the Texas Rangers beat the Kansas City Royals 9-3 Thursday.

The start may be Feldman’s last for a while because the Rangers are moving him to the bullpen to start the season.

Feldman finished spring training with a 3-1 record and 5.40 ERA.

Horacio Ramirez, who will be the Royals’ No. 5 starter, gave up six runs on nine hits, including a three-run homer to Adam Fox in the fifth. He has a 9.00 ERA in seven exhibition games.

Ramirez’s first start will be April 12 against the New York Yankees. He will likely make only one more start before April 30 and will be used as a left-handed reliever for most of the month.
