Pedro Feliciano recently returned to New York for additional testing after his initial physical was flagged, but it had nothing to do with his recent shoulder woes.
According to Marc Carig of New York Newsday, Feliciano will be shut down indefinitely after doctors found an irregular heartbeat. The 36-year-old left-hander told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that he has a small “hole” in the exterior of his heart, but the issue isn’t considered life-threatening and surgery hasn’t been discussed as an option. Still, he will be fitted for a heart monitor for the time being.
After failing to make an appearance during his two-year, $8 million deal with the Yankees, Feliciano returned to the Mets this winter on a minor league deal. He was hoping to compete for a bullpen spot this spring.
