Pedro Feliciano‘s first season in pinstripes hasn’t gone so hot. And that’s not likely to change.
According to Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger, the veteran-left hander has been shut down again from his ongoing rehabilitation from a torn shoulder capsule. He won’t resume throwing for at least a week and seems unlikely to overcome the injury before the end of the 2011 regular season.
Feliciano signed a two-year, $8 million free agent contract with the Yankees this past winter after posting a 3.30 ERA and holding left-hander batters to a .211/.297/.276 slash line in 2010 for the crosstown Mets. The 34-year-old suffered the injury during the middle of spring training and was placed on the disabled list before the start of the season. Things will have to change quickly for him to make it back before October.
