Feliciano has torn shoulder capsuleBy
Update (4/14/11, 3:51pm): Via Ben Shpigel, Feliciano has a torn shoulder capsule and is deciding whether or not he wants to try to rehab it or have season-ending surgery. Those of you with good memories will remember that Chien-Ming Wang had the exact same injury in 2009, and of course he still hasn’t come back. Ken Davidoff says Feliciano is heading to see Dr. Andrews for a second opinion next week, but there’s only so many ways you can say “yep, it’s shredded.”
Original Post (4/13/11, 10:23pm): Via Ben Shpigel, Joe Girardi said after tonight’s game that the MRI on Pedro Feliciano‘s shoulder was not good, simply calling it a “damaged shoulder.” It sounds like surgery is a possibility, which would presumably end his season before it even had a chance to began. Hopefully that’s not the case, but they have to brace for the worst. If only someone had warned them about the dangers of signing an over-worked, 30-something reliever to a multi-year deal. Maybe they’ll finally take the hint.
