In his latest minor league rehab appearance, left-hander Pedro Feliciano threw a perfect inning with a ground out and two fly outs. Anthony Ruggiero says the veteran reliever left the game after apparently jamming his foot covering first base for the final out of the inning. He stayed down a bit and walked off the field gingerly. For what it’s worth, he did remain in the dugout after the play.
Feliciano’s 30-day rehab window expires this weekend, and Ruggiero reports that he was still sitting around 84 mph with the fastball. If the Yankees want him to get back up to the 87 mph he averaged during his final season with the Mets before activating, they might end up waiting forever. Perhaps this latest foot problem will give them a chance to reset his rehab clock and allow the club to give him more minor league reps.
