Pedro Feliciano may begin the season on the disabled list

One of the reasons the Yankees went out and signed Pedro Feliciano this offseason is because he has been one of the most durable — or depending on your point of view, overworked — relievers in baseball over the past few seasons. In fact, he’s never been on the disabled list in eight major league seasons.

That all might change.

Multiple sources tell Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports that Feliciano could begin the season on the disabled list due to tricep soreness in his throwing arm. The 34-year-old southpaw hasn’t pitched in a Grapefruit League game since March 9 and is simply running out of time to get ready for the start of the season.

If Feliciano requires a DL-stint, Romulo Sanchez and non-roster invitee Luis Ayala are considered the likely replacements. Mark Prior, who has a 1.35 ERA and 10/4 K/BB ratio over 6 2/3 innings this spring, is still a longshot to make the Opening Day roster.

    That’s too bad. I love it when he follows the Star Spangled Bungle with “Light My Fire.”
