According to Ken Davidoff of New York Newsday, Pedro Feliciano’s agent Melvin Roman says his client is “seriously considering” accepting the Mets’ arbitration offer. Players face a Tuesday deadline to accept or decline arbitration.
Feliciano is one of the most effective and durable left-handed relievers in the sport, so it’s hard to believe he won’t find a multi-year deal with another club. The 34-year-old southpaw earned $2.9 million this past season while posting a 3.30 ERA and leading the major leagues with 92 appearances. He has led the National League in appearances for each of the past three seasons.
In the end, the Mets will either re-sign Feliciano for around $4 million or get a compensatory draft pick if he turns down arbitration only to sign elsewhere. Sounds like a win-win to me.
