Pedro Feliciano failed to win a spot in the Mets’ bullpen and may decided to opt out of his minor-league contract rather than accept an assignment to Triple-A, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.
“They told me I’m going to Triple-A for a month and get my strength back,” Feliciano told Rubin. “I have to talk to my agent first and then see what we’re going to decide.”
It’s tough to imagine another team giving Feliciano an immediate big-league opportunity considering he hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2010 due to arm injuries and if he does accept the assignment to Triple-A he’d get a $100,000 bonus as part of his contract.
