The majority of the Mets are off today, except for those who have a “B’’ game in Jupiter later this afternoon. Pitchers Shaun Marcum, Pedro Feliciano and LaTroy Hawkins will each log some innings. The projected fifth starter, Marcum, raised concerns when he didn’t report to camp in shape. Here is a guy trying to hang onto a major league job and got a $4 million guaranteed contract from the Mets. He doesn’t come to camp ready to pitch and […]
Updated by HoJo on 2/24 Pedro Feliciano will be shut down for at least two weeks from baseball activity while he wears a heart monitor while the team doctors continue to monitor could be a potentially serious heart condition, It’s not exactly clear if Feliciano has a hole in his heart or even if that’s the cause of his irregular heartbeat. The next two weeks will help doctors come to a more exact diagnosis of […]
THE GAME: Ruben Tejada hit a two-run homer and Collin Cowgill drove in a run with double as the Mets won their exhibition opener, 5-3, over Washington. One game does not a spring training make, but if you’re going to play the games it is better to win them. WHEELER IMPRESSIVE: Zack Wheeler wowed them in his first appearance of the spring, giving up a walk and hit in two scoreless innings. Wheeler threw mostly fastballs and sliders, the […]
Pedro Feliciano spent his entire career in a Mets uniform until the day he left via Free Agency following the 2010 season. At the time our well documented financial situation got in the way, and the Yankees came in and offered the lefty specialist a nice contract to join our crosstown rivals. Well, two years and $8 million dollars later, Pedro is once again on the verge of Free Agency. He never made his Yankees […]
Tomorrow is the deadline for teams to offer salary arbitration to free agents in order to preserve their right to draft-pick compensation. No news yet as to whether the Mets intend do offer arby to Pedro Feliciano, who is a Type B free agent. Ken Davidoff of Newsday, tweeted that the Yankees are very interested in lefty reliever Pedro Feliciano. The Mets reliever will be considered by many teams and is expected to fetch a 3-year deal for as much as $12MM. The […]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NewYork, the Philadelphia Phillies have declined their team option on J.C. Romero, and are now in the hunt for a left-handed reliever. The Philadelphia Inquirer (as per Rubin) is speculating that the Phillies may now have strong interest in Hisanori Takahashi who was released by the Mets after they were unable to work out a new contract with him. Takahashi, 35, is reportedly seeking a three-year deal worth about $15MM after a successful rookie […]
As you all know by now, the Mets have released Hisanori Takahashi as per the special terms of the 1-year deal he signed last offseason. Takahashi is now a free agent, and at midnight tonight, he will be joined by fellow southpaw Pedro Feliciano. Takahashi, 35, was said to be looking for a 3-year deal worth $15 million dollars. What lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano will be looking for has yet to be determined, but some reports having him […]
Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano is has officially been classified as a Type B free agent. What that means to the Mets is that Feliciano just picked up a whole lotta leverage this offseason. If he had been classified as a Type A free agent, as many thought he would, Feliciano would have had a hard time getting a deal from another team this offseason because most teams would have been reluctant to part with their first round […]
One of the first decisions the new Mets GM will have to make, is to decide whether he will simply let lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano walk and become a free agent, sign him to a multi year deal, or offer him arbitration. “Perpetual Pedro” is quite possibly one of the most reliable and durable relievers in the game today. In fact, there’s no other reliever that comes even close to equaling him in terms of volume of work. The […]
