The Yankees expressed interest in lefty reliever Pedro Feliciano, tweets Ken Davidoff of Newsday. The rubber-armed 34-year-old figures to be popular this winter, with the Phillies, Angels, Mets, and others also seeking left-handed relief. The question for the Yankees, notes Mike Axisa of River Ave. Blues, is whether they're willing to commit multiple years and a $3MM+ salary to Feliciano or a similar veteran given the money they already owe to Damaso Marte and Boone Logan.
Feliciano led the National League in appearances in each of the last three seasons. His detractors will suggest he's been overworked; his agents at MDR Sports Management will say it's proof of his durability. One Feliciano trait that cannot be argued: he's very tough on lefties.
