Mets Sign Pedro Feliciano

The Mets announced that they have signed Pedro Feliciano to a minor league deal.  The deal includes an invite to major league spring training.

Feliciano, 36, is coming off a two-year, $8MM deal he signed with the Yankees.  Unfortunately, injury problems kept him from throwing a single big league inning for the Bombers during that time.  Yankees GM Brian Cashman said in 2011 that the Mets "abused" Feliciano by relying on him to pitch constantly.  Over his eight years spent with the Mets, the left-hander posted a 3.31 ERA with 8.2 K/9 and 3.8 BB/9.  He led the National League in appearances each year from 2008-10, averaging 89 games per season for that three-year span.

The reliever is represented by MDR Sports Management.
