The Yankees have been looking to add a lefty reliever all offseason and it appears that they have finally gotten their man in former Met Pedro Feliciano, according to Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated.
The deal appears to be a two-year deal worth about $8 million plus an option for 2013.
Feliciano, 34, is coming off a season where he pitched in 92 games over 62.2 innings . He also had a 3.30 ERA, a 1.532 WHIP, a 8.0 K/9 and a 3.4 BB/9 rate. His numbers against lefties, .211 average and .574 OPS against are the biggest reason the Yankees are getting him though.
So what do you think? Smart move by the Yankees? Or should they have targeted Brian Fuentes or a different lefty?
