    Mets bring back a reliever

    Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) tweeted at 12:51pm - 21 Jan 13:

    Pedro Feliciano back with #Mets on minor league contract with spring-training invite. (https://twitter.com/AdamRubinESPN/st...15613584523264)

    I am for one glad they did this, been telling my brother all offseason if they are gunna do this wait to the end and pick up the scraps of bullpen arms leading into spring training, why not bring him in on a minor league deal, I see him making the roster and being a strong option in the bullpen again, just gotta see how long he can last

    The Mets have signed reliever Pedro Feliciano to a minor-league contract, the team announced.

    The 36-year-old lefty spent the last two seasons in the Yankees' minor-league system, never throwing a pitch for the major-league club. Feliciano tore a capsule in his throwing shoulder with the team, and had rotator-cuff surgery in September 2011. He has thrown only 10 1/3 professional innings over the last two years.

    Feliciano pitched in the Puerto Rican Winter League this offseason, giving up one run in 7 1/3 innings, good for a 1.23 ERA. Feliciano's contract comes with an invitation to major-league spring training, where he'll try to regain a spot on the Mets' roster. Feliciano led the league in appearances from 2008 to 2010. In eight seasons with the Mets, Feliciano had a 3.31 ERA and a 3.71 FIP in 372 1/3 career innings.
    Not a bad move, works well for depth and who knows maybe Feliciano comes back effective.

    He was never a guy who had to throw hard to get guys out and i always liked him.

    The back to back arm injuries scare me a bit but he did pitch well in the Puerto Rican leagues this winter and in the end he still stole 8 million dollars from the Yankees

    He stole $8 million from the Yankees and now he's cheap. The latter is the sole reason why he is now back in the Mets organization.

    I am not arguing the reason they brought him in, i am just stating why he could still be a useful asset.

    Certain LHRP can go forever.

    We know that from Jesse Orosco and a more current example Darren Oliver.

    Most of the remaining FA relievers are going to come into teams on minor league deals though now that i think about it.

    I've been saying they should do this.

    Very glad they did. Can never have enough leftys and he's just a guy who know how to pitch.

    True, because most 40-man rosters are set. And, signing a reliever with a medical risk to a MLB contract would require removing someone from the 40-man.

    Knowing the overall *shape* of an idea, argument, situation requires as many facts, models, opinions as you can take/make to see a whole.

    Correct.

    And if he doesn't, no big deal. The problem is it is hard to draw to an inside straight.

    Less than a month from pitchers and catchers and still no major league free agents signed.

    And no, I'm not inviting the reflex "well who would you sign" rebuttal. I'm actually in awe of a major league organization being able to pull this off.

    That's why they've been known as the "Amazin Mets". They never cease to amaze.

    I like the move because he at least has had some major league success.
