The Mets’ abuse of left-handed reliever Pedro Feliciano goes on. Or something.

According to MLB.com beat writer Bryan Hoch, the veteran reliever underwent an MRI on his troublesome left shoulder Wednesday and it showed significant damage. So much so that he might require a major surgical procedure.

The Yankees aren’t commenting on the specifics of the damage yet for reasons that manager Joe Girardi laid out for reporters on Wednesday night:

“In fairness to the player, he needs to talk about it with our doctor and the agents and decide what the next course of action is,” said Girardi. “He was throwing the ball in Spring Training and didn’t have any problems. Then after the one day he had a problem. I can’t tell you exactly when it happened, in a sense. He’s had some shoulder problems in the past.”

The Yankees have already accused the Mets of overusing Feliciano during his eight-year tenure with the cross-town club. Now the Bombers are going to be without the man that they signed to a two-year, $8 million contract for quite a bit of time. Perhaps continuing to blame the Mets will bring them some kind of solace.

    Yea seriously how many times are you gonna talk about the fact that cashman blamed the mets?

    Not that Drew needs defending, but its ridiculous to blame a players prior team for an injury.

    The Yanks knew his history and thats that.

    When the Mets traded for JJ. Putz in 09, they werent complainign that the White Sox had ruined him when he couldnt pitch anymore.
