Feliciano will make next rehab appearance with SI Yanks tomorrow

By

Left-hander Pedro Feliciano will make his next minor league rehab appearance with the Short Season Staten Island Yankees tomorrow rather than with Double-A Trenton tonight. It had been rumored that the 36-year-old would wrap up his rehab with the Thunder today before joining the Yankees when the rosters expand on Saturday, but I guess there will be a slight delay before he’s activated.

Feliciano pitched in back-to-back games and entered a game in the middle of an inning earlier this week, both firsts as part of his rehab. It seems like they wanted to give him an extra day of rest before his next outing, and Trenton heads out on the road following tonight’s game while Staten Island will be playing in Brooklyn tomorrow. If they give him a day of rest following Friday’s appearance, Feliciano would join the big league bullpen on Sunday rather than Saturday. Not a huge deal.

    Can we start guessing the likelihood that feliciano gives up a homer to Carlos Pena at some point in the Tampa series?

  2. Hoss says:

    So, Feliciano proves everyone who said he wouldn’t pitch in NY by August wrong. Of course, if you had specified The Bronx instead of SI or Brooklyn, you would have been correct.

    Hopefully he can have some Marte like performances in the post-season….if we get there.

      If?…you must be thinking of the Angels or Tigers or A’s or O’s or Ray’s or ChiSox, not the NYY.

      Texas is in, we got regular players coming back weekly…6oo ball from here on out should win the divison.

    What’s the cut-off for players to make the post-season roster? Will he be added in time?
