Via RAB per Ben Shpigel, Pedro Feliciano‘s second MRI revealed what the team is referring to as a “damaged shoulder.” Without knowing more we can only surmise what may happen, though it probably means another lefty reliever on the shelf for the better part of the season. Along with Damaso Marte that’s $8 million for two guys who may not throw a pitch for the team all year.
Meanwhile Jeff Francis, who I banged the drum for pretty loudly this past offseason, is off to a fine start in Kansas City. While Francis probably isn’t 2.61 ERA/3.49 FIP/3.05 xFIP good, I’d rather have gambled $2 million on Francis than $4 million on Feliciano. The only positive I can glean from this is that if the Yankees are determined to add another lefty to the ‘pen, perhaps Andy Sisco (3 innings, four strikeouts and one walk over two relief appearances at AAA thus far) will get a shot.
