Yankees Sign Pedro Feliciano To A Two-Year Deal
In a move that comes as no surprise, Jon Heyman SI.com, reports that the New York Yankees and Pedro Feliciano have come to an agreement that will bring the longtime Mets reliever to the Bronx for the next two seasons.
The two sides will most likely finalize the deal today and it’s expected to be be a 2-year deal for $8 million dollars and could include an option for a third year.
“I think it was a good thing to stay in New York,” Feliciano told ESPNNewYork.com “I mean, that’s the best city in the States.”
Feliciano set Mets’ franchise records by appearing in 86 games in 2008, 88 games in 2009 and 92 games in 2010.
“After I broke the record the first time, I just tried to put in my mind that I tried to break it again, and I did it,” Feliciano said. “This past year I just put in my mind that if I could break it again I would do it. And I did it.”
The Mets offered Feliciano salary arbitration so they will receive a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds of next year’s Amateur Draft.
The Mets have yet to replace Feliciano in the bullpen.
