This has me feeling like the Yankees are more worried about Feliciano’s injury than they have let on. If it was just a matter of him taking a week off then replacing him with either Garrison or Ayala is really not a big deal. Or it could mean that they have absolutely no trust in either Garrison or Ayala which could be the case. With the state of this team’s pitching staff every win could end up being essential and the Yankees have the Red Sox coming up the second week of the season.
It’s going to be hard to find something though as most teams are scrambling right now to fill roster holes. The Yankees do have players available to make minor deals though like Ramiro Pena who has become expendable since Eduardo Nunez grabbed a bench spot over him. He’s certainly not worth a lot, but he could be worth a middle reliever.
