Feliciano will begin throwing program June 1st

Via Brian Costello, forgotten lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano will begin a throwing program on June 1st as he attempts to rehab his torn shoulder capsule. “It’s been tough,” said Feliciano. “I like to be out there every day. I like when the phone rings to hear my name. Now, I have to just wait. It’s hard.” No word on how long said program will last, but I assure you this is not a two week thing. Whatever the Yankees’ get out of Pedro this year is gravy, you have to expect nothing with an injury like this.

Rafael Soriano, meanwhile, will throw off a mound at some point before the end of this homestand. He’s been playing catch regularly, but he’s going to need some bullpen sessions and a minor league rehab appearance or two before rejoining the team.

    Isn’t being out there every day why you are DL’d in the first place Pedro?

    Give him some credit for trying to get back out on the mound instead of opting for surgery right away while collecting his $8 million over the next 2 years.

    When Soriano returns and if Felicano returns, which 2 out of the group of Noesi, Pendleton and Ayala should be sent out? If its me I keep Noesi up here. He looks like a perfect swing man for the pen. All bullpens need a long guy. Pendleton has pitched well when given a chance but Girardi really seems to have no faith in him. Also, I think it is a matter of time before Luis Ayala implodes and goes back to being Luis Ayala.
