Roster Updates: Feliciano, Molina, Ayala, Garcia, Colon

Granderson will be in lineup tomorrow
Open Thread: Mo ... and everyone else

Via Marc Carig, Pedro Feliciano has been diagnosed with a rotator cuff strain, which is a whole lot worse than the sore triceps he reportedly had a week or three ago. No idea if this will change his return date or anything, but obviously it’s bad news. Good thing Feliciano is different than everyone else and has proven himself to be a workhorse. Grumble grumble.

In other news, both Gustavo Molina and Luis Ayala have been added to the 25-man roster while Romulo Sanchez is officially out the door and on the way to Japan. I count 41 players on the 40-man roster right now, and that doesn’t include Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon. Damaso Marte will open up a spot when he’s placed on the 60-day DL, and I suppose Colin Curtis’ shoulder injury is serious enough that he could as well. Still, that leaves one spot that has to be cleared, so another move is coming.

Update: Brian Heyman says Marte, Curtis, and Reegie Corona were all placed on the 60-day DL, so everyone’s on the 40-man now.

    Giving relievers multi-year deals: Never a good idea :(

    • CP

      I’m not sure that’s true. Sure, Feliciano probably won’t pitch much this year, but even if he’d only been on a one year contract that would have been the case. Is he really less likely to pitch next year than some other LOOGY that the Yankees could sign next off season? Because of the volatility of relievers, even one year deals aren’t safe.

      The only truly bad deals would be multi-year deals with a player opt out after each season.

      • jsbrendog

        or damaso marte’s contract.

  • cano is the bro

    ughhh its marte all over again…

  • Nathan

    Marte, Feliciano — grrr

    We basically picked up the Mets’ trash @ 8 Mill

    • Mister Delaware

      No, we picked up the Mets very effective LOOGY for $8MM which was a questionable move because relievers on long term deals is rarely a good idea.

      • Nathan

        I meant they used him up and let him go.

        Interesting, his physical was clean I assume, given the fact that they gave him 2 years (or was it Levine who gave this deal). So did he hurt it in the interim or during camp only.

  • Brooklyn Ed

    Corona lives another day on the 40 man. so hmm why Cashman isnt DFAing him?

  • Jerome S.

    Meh, still too early to write him off.

  • Pastadivingarod

    Not counting on pedro at all this year

    Marte will reappear in aug and be lights out loogy

    Also man ban will be in AAA by jun and a sept call up as logan turns back into the old boone logan this year.
    Yankees continue the joba treatment as man ban comes out of the pen ( Fransessa will proclaim we have found a future replacement for Mo)
    Look for Prior in the second half as colon will be long gone

    Garcia is last years javy and gone by playoffs
    This is Joba,s year as he will be the joba of old resulting in cashman trading him for a big ticket starter for the playoffs ( king felix anyone)
    Hughes will be hit hard this year

    • Cuso

      So all this is based on nothing more than “who you like” or “what you wish would happen,” right?

      • Pastadivingarod

        No i called the pSychic friends network

    • king of fruitless hypotheticals

      this would all fit better in the other thread…

    • CS Yankee

      2011 (if only this was 2004)
      Aquire Colon, Garcia, Millwood, Jones & Chavez all for a total of under 10M$

      Who would of thunk?

  • theyankeewarrior

    They are all left handed… they are all making 4M dollars…. they are all not playing for the Yankees. They are Igawa… Marte… Feleciano


    Hopefully our hefty lefty will step up big tomorrow.

    • CS Yankee

      Igawa is playing for the Yankees…The SWB Yankees.

  • Fair Weather Freddy

    Feliciano has the same injury ans Lidge has been diagnosed with and he is supposed to miss 3-6 weeks. Could get him back in early June

    • CS Yankee
