Biographical Information[edit]

Pedro Feliciano is a left-handed relief pitcher who was most noted for his ability to pitch almost every day when he was with the New York Mets from 2007 to 2010. During that three-year span, in which he led the National League in games pitched for three consecutive season, he set two records. He had the most games pitched over 3 consecutive seasons, 266; the previous record was 263 by Mike Marshall from 1972-1974 and Kent Tekulve, from 1978-1980. He also had the most games pitched over 4 consecutive seasons, 344, adding the 2007 season; the previous record was 341 by Paul Quantrill, from 2001-2004.

Feliciano was signed as a free agent to a two-year contract by the New York Yankees in 2011, but was sidelined by shoulder troubles in spring training. On April 14, GM Brian Cashman announced that he would face shoulder surgery, meaning that he would be ready to pitch again the following season's spring training at the earliest, and possibly much later. Asked if he had signed damaged goods, Cashman lashed at overuse of relief pitchers by certain managers, singling out former Yankees manager Joe Torre and his overuse of Scott Proctor, among others. Feliciano came back to pitch once in the minor leagues in 2011, and 10 times in 2012, never higher than at AA. He did make it back briefly, with his original team, the Mets, at the end of the 2013 season.
