Feliciano faces two in latest minor league rehab outing

By

For the first time as part of his rehab from shoulder surgery, left-hander Pedro Feliciano pitched in back-to-back days and entered a game in the middle of an inning tonight. With men on second and third and no outs, Feliciano got a ground ball to second (run scored) and walked a right-handed batter. Only one of his five pitches was a strike, and a passed ball by the catcher allow the second runner to come around to score. He was pitching for Double-A Trenton. Here’s video.

Yesterday we heard that the 36-year-old southpaw is likely to make another rehab appearance on Thursday before potentially joining the big league bullpen when rosters expand on Saturday. That assumes he comes through these last two appearances as well as the next one with no problems. Either way, he’s close.

    Let’s hope he stays healthy and is at the least serviceable. We didn’t pay him $8 million for nothing.
