Pedro Feliciano Could Start Season On DL
According to Bryan Hoch who covers the New York Yankees for MLB.com, Pedro feliciano could start the season on the Disabled List.
Hoch says that Feliciano has a sore left triceps (forearm) and he has not pitched since March 9, almost three weeks ago.
Feliciano signed a two-year deal is worth $8 million, and it included a club option for 2013.
Feliciano was one of the most durable relievers in the game, but at 34 years old, and with all that wear and tear on his arm, Sandy Alderson decided to take a pass on re-signing Feliciano this offseason. Good move. I have no doubt that he would have been re-signed at great expense if Omar Minaya was still running things.
Feliciano led the NL in appearances in 2009 and 2010 logging over 170 appearances during that stretch.
Obviously, the new GM has a good idea of what he is doing at the helm of the New York Mets.
