Mets Re-Sign Pedro Feliciano To Minors Deal
The New York Mets announced this morning that they have signed former Met Pedro Feliciano to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training. Here on MMO last week, we brought up the idea of the Mets bringing back Feliciano.
The 36-year old Feliciano led the majors in games pitched from 2008-2010 making 266 appearances all as a Met. He has held lefties to a career .214 mark, leading the Yankees to sign him following the 2010 season to a two-year $8 million deal. Feliciano, riddled with injuries, failed to throw a single pitch for the cross-town rival Yankees over the span of that contract.
After pitching to the tune of a 1.23 ERA in seven relief games in the Puerto Rican Winter League this season, Sandy Alderson and the front office apparently have seen enough to believe that he is healthy and could make an impact on the 2013 bullpen.
