Pedro Feliciano said last week that he was leaning toward surgery on a torn shoulder capsule, but after meeting with Dr. James Andrews the Yankees reliever has decided to delay a decision for at least six weeks.
Dr. Andrews advised against going under the knife, instead recommending a strength and conditioning program for the injured shoulder, but season-ending surgery remains a possibility and he’s a long shot to contribute anything to the Yankees this season either way.
General manager Brian Cashman previously criticized the Mets for “abusing” Feliciano with heavy workloads, but the shoulder injury was suffered during spring training.
