Warning: Overused Reliever May Develop Arm Trouble

Jack Curry of YES offered up a quirky Tweet yesterday pertaining to the Yankees’ injured free-agent acquisition, Pedro Feliciano:

Feliciano led the major lgs in appearances with the Mets the last 3 yrs. “He was abused,” Cashman said

Feliciano is a de facto LOOGY who had a career-high 92 appearances for the Mets last season, after pitching in 86 and 88 games in the prior two campaigns.

When asked about Cashman’s comments, Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen replied in part:

I feel badly that someone feels that way. That was part of the reason we decided to not re-sign him — because we knew we had used him 270-some times in the last three years.

Scott Proctor was unavailable for comment.
