The often abused former Mets pitcher, Pedro Feliciano, has not pitched for the Yankees once in the first year of his two-year deal and it looks like he will never pitch for them at all.
Feliciano has missed this entire season while rehabbing from a shoulder injury he sustained in spring training and now he is likely out for next season as well after undergoing rotator cuff surgery on September 8, according to Dan Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal.
It was easy not to like the signing at the time as Feliciano was downright abused by the Mets. He has pitched in at least 86 games over each of the past three years. Pitching four or five nights in a row was a regular thing and he even pitched in six games in a row at least once. On top of that he pitched for Jerry Manuel over the past two years and he had a regular habit of warming his pitchers up in the bullpen without ever bringing them into a game.
This was a bad signing by the Yankees who can’t seem to figure out how to properly evaluate lefty relievers.
