Feliciano throws 25 pitches in first full bullpen session since surgery


Via Erik Boland, forgotten left-hander Pedro Feliciano threw 25 pitches in Tampa today, his first full-mound session since having surgery to repair his rotator cuff last September. The 35-year-old still has a long way to go in his rehab and really the Yankees shouldn’t count on him to contribute anything this year. If he gets healthy in time to serve as a third lefty specialist when the rosters expand in September, great. Whatever they get is gravy, if anything.

    Who? Oh yeah, now I remember him.

  2. J.R. says:

    Reminds me of Damaso Marte in 09.

  3. yankeefan says:

    Its crazy he’s even in a mound he supposedly wasn’t even supposed to pitch at all dis year.

  4. I always forget this guy is on the Yankees, until there is some update about some progress or a set back, then he just disappears again.

  5. viridiana says:

    Story idea: Will Yanks ever promote Williams, Sanchez and Austin? What in the world are they waiting for?

  6. Damix says:

    Any chance we give him a minor league deal next year, or do you think we’re done with him given how this all went down?

    • Robinson Tilapia says:

      I was going to suggest a collection agency, actually. Have the repo guys come back from Pavano’s house yet?

    • Steve says:

      If he would take a minor league deal, the Yanks would gladly take him. Depends if they have the spot for him (i.e. Is Rapada still good?) though.

  7. CS Yankee says:

    Seems like its been only 9M$ ago he was throwing BP.

  8. Cofuzz says:

    Any word on draft signings Mike?

    35 year old lefty?

    Still very young.

  11. YanksFanInBeantown says:

    The only way Feliciano pitches this year is if Joba somehow gives him some of his healing factor.

    He could be the Deadpool to Joba’s Wolverine

    You thought the Pavano Experience was at a “premium price”…. Felicianos $750k per batter faced this September are gonna be AWESOME!
