Feliciano throws scoreless inning in latest rehab appearance

By

Left-hander Pedro Feliciano struck out two and allowed a walk in a scoreless inning for Double-A Trenton this evening. He also uncorked a wild pitch and threw nine of 17 pitches for strikes, sitting in his usual mid-80s. After three appearances in Rookie ball and one with High-A Tampa, this was Feliciano’s first minor league rehab outing with the Thunder. Here’s video.

Mike Ashmore spoke to the veteran southpaw prior to the game, and Feliciano indicated that the plan is throw another inning tomorrow — his first back-to-back appearances during this rehab stint — and then again on Thursday. If all that goes well, he could rejoin the team when roster expand on Saturday.

    I still don’t believe it.

    As Joba showed, dominating minor leaguers is not the same as facing MLB hitters, even weak ones. Yet Feliciano’s surgery was quite different than Joba, and he’s a much different pitcher. I still don’t have high hopes, but it’ll be interesting to see if he can contribute for the September run.
