Since Byrdak is injured and missing part of the season, we could use a lefty reliever to replace him. Feliciano is healthy and was great for us when we had him. Hopefully we can bring him back to Queens.
By the way, I'm hoping we can get Brian Wilson as our closer, with Mejia as our long reliever, and Fransisco, Rauch, Parnell, and Brandon Lyon as our middle relievers.
Feliciano is coming off two years of not pitching and had capsule and rotator cuff surgery last year.
Shoulder injuries are much different than elbows and we saw that with Santana last year (not to mention Byrdak is coming off that surgery too)
I guess they could give him a look, send someone from the FO to see how he is progressing but i don't know if i would bring him back unless it was veteran's minimum or spring training invitee.
I would rather we take our chances with Edgin and Carson and see what happens..
No way we get Lyons btw, he will be looking for too much money.
I would understand a minor league deal fora Feliciano who has a shot to pitch this year over a Byrdak.
Yes. I've been suggesting his name since the summer. Never enough leftys. But apparently for this organization 1 is enough.
Move on...been there. Done that.
If you want a lefty, find someone else.
He's not gonna cost a lot so he'll be low risk/high reward. And if he doesn't pitch well or get injured, then we can use Carson or Edgin but I rather Feliciano.

Feliciano has experience but that's the only way i would sign him is to a minor league deal with a spring training invite.
