The Yankees signed left-hander Pedro Feliciano to a two-year, $8 million contract with a club option for 2013 over the winter, but their new investment was forced to begin the season on the disabled list with a strained left rotator cuff.
And it doesn’t sound like we’ll be seeing him anytime soon.
According to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York, Feliciano didn’t feel right after playing catch for the first time in two weeks earlier today and will undergo another MRI on his left shoulder.
“It is a concern,” manager Joe Girardi said. “We were hoping after these two weeks we would be able to take the next step and then the next step and we are just not there yet. We will do an MRI on [Wednesday] and see exactly and maybe we will get a better time-table.”
Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that doctors will inject Feliciano’s shoulder with dye during tomorrow’s test in order to look for any tears. And if they find anything serious, please remember, the Mets forced the Yankees to sign him.
