Cubs signed LHP Pedro Feliciano to a minor league contract.
FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reported Tuesday that the two sides were close to a deal. Feliciano would receive a $700,000 base salary if he makes the Cubs and could earn more with incentives. The 38-year-old was one of the most durable relievers in the majors during his days with the Mets, but shoulder issues have limited him to just 35 games at the major league level since 2010. He's likely a long shot to make Chicago's bullpen. Feb 4 - 10:30 AM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Cubs are close to a minor league deal with Pedro Feliciano.

The contract will include an invitation to major league spring training, but the 38-year-old left-hander seems doubtful to win a spot on the Cubs' Opening Day roster. Feliciano posted a rough 5.57 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 19/8 K/BB ratio in 21 innings of relief last season for the Cardinals' Triple-A affiliate.
Feb 3 - 5:55 PM

Cardinals signed LHP Pedro Feliciano to a minor league contract.

The veteran southpaw had been working out at the club's spring training facility, so the signing doesn't come as a tremendous surprise. He'll work himself into game shape at Triple-A Memphis before becoming an option for the Cardinals.

Pedro Feliciano is working out at the Cardinals' spring training facility and could be signed by the club.

Feliciano is expected to pitch at the complex for a couple weeks before the Cards determine whether he's worth signing to a minor league deal. The 37-year-old left-hander posted a 3.97 ERA over 25 relief appearances for the Mets last season after missing the previous two years with shoulder issues.

Mets purchased the contract of LHP Pedro Feliciano from Triple-A Las Vegas.

He'll replace the injured Josh Edgin on the active roster. Bothered by shoulder problems, this will be Feliciano's first stint in the majors since 2010 as a member of the Mets. The 36-year-old southpaw had a 1.29 ERA and 19/4 K/BB ratio over 21 innings in the minors, but he has reportedly struggled with his velocity.

Pedro Feliciano has joined Double-A Binghamton.

Feliciano has been sidelined since May 3 due to a severe case of food poisoning. The southpaw isn't close to returning to the majors.

Pedro Feliciano has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with High-A St. Lucie due to food poisoning.

Feliciano has a 1.93 ERA and 4/2 K/BB ratio in 4 2/3 innings over five appearances, but he hasn't shown much in the way of velocity. He's not close to making his way back to the majors.
Thu, May 9, 2013 05:04:00 PM

Pedro Feliciano has officially joined High-A St. Lucie.

Feliciano has spent the past two weeks in extended spring training in order to build strength in his left shoulder. The 36-year-old could be an option for the major league bullpen if he shows improvement in the days ahead.

Pedro Feliciano threw a simulated inning Tuesday in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Feliciano didn't make the Opening Day roster because the Mets wanted to see him build more velocity. The veteran southpaw will begin the season with High-A St. Lucie and could be an option for the major league bullpen at some point.

Pedro Feliciano will begin the season with High-A St. Lucie as opposed to pitching for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Feliciano was informed Tuesday that he was not making the Opening Day roster, but he has elected to stay with the organization. The hope is that he'll continue to build arm strength and eventually become an option for the major league bullpen.
Wed, Mar 27, 2013 01:31:00 PM

Pedro Feliciano will accept a minor league assignment from the Mets.

Feliciano was informed by the Mets on Monday that he wouldn't make the Opening Day roster, but he has opted to stay with the organization rather than test free agency. The hope is that his velocity will increase as he builds arm strength. The veteran southpaw could be an option for the major league bullpen at some point this year.
Tue, Mar 26, 2013 09:11:00 AM

The Mets have asked Pedro Feliciano to report to Triple-A Las Vegas to work on his arm strength.

Feliciano has been slowed this spring by a heart condition and isn't where he needs to be physically. But he has the option of testing free agency again and might take that route. "I have to talk to my agent first and then see what we're going to decide," the lefty said Monday.

Pedro Feliciano (heart condition) pitched in a B-game Tuesday against the Marlins.

Feliciano allowed a leadoff homer and also hit a batter in his inning of work, but he was satisfied with the effort. The veteran southpaw was recently diagnosed with a rare genetic heart condition, but it's not expected to impact his availability to pitch. However, he will wear a heart monitor for the next two weeks as he battles for a bullpen job.

Pedro Feliciano (heart condition) threw a bullpen session Friday.

Mike Kerwick of the Bergen Record termed it as a "little bullpen session," so he likely didn't throw with full intensity. Feliciano was recently diagnosed with a rare genetic heart condition, but it's not expected to impact his availability to pitch. The veteran left-hander is in camp this spring as a non-roster invitee and should be ready for game action before long.

Pedro Feliciano was diagnosed with a rare genetic heart condition called left ventricular noncompaction.

The good news is that Feliciano's agent said it should not affect his ability to pitch. The veteran left-hander has been cleared to resume baseball activities on the condition that he wears a heart monitor in the short-term. Assuming no abnormalities are found, there should be enough time for him to get ready for the season. Feliciano, a non-roster invitee this spring, is trying to win a spot in the Mets' bullpen.
