From 2006 to 2008, he appeared in 25 games for the Seattle Mariners, 19 of them as a starting pitcher. He racked up a total of 64 strikeouts in 106.0 innings.
In 2014, he briefly appeared in the big leagues for the Texas Rangers, posting a ghastly 6.14 ERA in just 7.1 frames.
In two games for the Blue Jays, he surrendered seven earned runs in 5.2 innings, walking one and striking out four.

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo noted that the team didn’t want to use Feierabend out of the pen in his second outing, but was forced to due to the circumstances.
