Yesterday the Mets informed Pedro Feliciano that he wouldn’t be making the Opening Day roster and the left-hander talked about potentially opting out of his minor-league contract, but today he decided to accept an assignment to Triple-A.
That seems like a smart move by Feliciano considering he hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2010 due to arm injuries and was never going to get an immediate big-league opportunity elsewhere. And if he was going to pitch at Triple-A no matter what he might as well stick with the Mets, who’re hardly overflowing with left-handed bullpen depth.
Feliciano will need to stay healthy and increase his velocity before a return to the majors is even a possibility.
