The Yankees’ two-year, $8 million offseason investment into longtime Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano continues to look bleaker and bleaker.
According to Dan Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal, the Yankees announced Wednesday that Feliciano underwent rotator cuff surgery late last week. No recovery timetable has been issued, but the procedure was far from minor and will almost certainly affect his status for the first half of the 2012 season. Or perhaps all of the 2012 season.
Feliciano did not pitch at all this year after suffering a strained rotator cuff during spring training. He elected to rehab that injury rather than repair it surgically, and is probably now regretting that decision.
The 35-year-old lefty had a 3.31 ERA in eight seasons with the Mets before signing with the Yanks last winter.
