Jesus Feliciano Weighing Minor League Offers

It took Jesus Feliciano 12 years before he finally reached the big leagues, which he did with the Mets in 2010. Now the 31-year-old outfielder is weighing multiple minor league contract offers according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. It's unclear which teams made those offers.

Feliciano has spent the last five years playing in Triple-A, hitting .316/.363/.394 in 1,834 plate appearances. In 119 trips to the plate for the Amazin's last season, he hit .231/.276/.287 while playing all three outfield spots. The Mets dropped Feliciano off their 40-man roster back in November.

    I could see the Braves being interested in signing him to minor league deal. His flexibility as a defensive OF is in line with what they need. It’d be better if he could hit, of course, but I guess that’s why he doesn’t have a major league deal already, huh?

    • They already have better options than this 31 yr old Mets’ cast-off.

        Well yeah, but we are talking a minor league deal that has no downside and can be depth in case all the not-so-hot-looking CF options they have fizzle.

  2. Yes, I know this guy isn’t anything special. But why not give him a shot? It is like the Moneyball argument with Chad Bradford: No matter his age, mechanics, or whatever, he is getting something done in AAA, and there is a chance that could translate to MLB.

    Why not the Pirates?

    18 HR’s and 320 BB in 4500 AB’s with average defense. This guy’s upside is a limited as it gets.

    possibly with the ChiSox to compete with De Aza and Lillibridge for 4th outfield spot?

    With numbers like his, he has a better chance of walking on water than landing a MLB job.

  8. he actually played for Puerto Rico, not Mexico.
