    SEATTLE — Pedro Feliciano’s career as a Yankee will likely be defined by the number of pitches he threw in pinstripes: zero.
    The Yankees announced today that the left-handed reliever underwent rotator cuff surgery last week after months of attempting rehab for a shoulder injury suffered in spring training.
    The timing of the surgery, which was performed by orthopedic surgeon James Andrews, will likely cost Feliciano all of next season.
    The former Mets reliever signed a two-year, $8 million free-agent deal last winter to join the Yankees, who were willing to overlook his heavy workload because of his performance. But unless the team picks up a $4.5 million option for the 2013 season, Feliciano will not make a single appearance for the Yankees.
    Can't see us picking up that option.

    The reports I read indicate he will miss all of the 2012 season and his career is in jeopardy as well . So, it's pretty much a complete waste .

    What a shame. Imagine if we had in him our pen. It would be even better.

    Won't be the first complete waste of a contract for the Yankees.

    At least AJ gave us one good year.

    I know what you mean, but when I read that it comes off as though you thought it was Pedro's fault. Which it isn't.

    At least insurance should cover most of his salary. Right?

    Yes, I think so. I wonder if they insured his salary * 1.5 to cover the lux tax.

    Where does Pedro go from here? Does he try to get signed elsewhere in the majors, take a job in the minors hoping to break back through or do a Colon and play in the South American leagues?

    Does Cashman even have a viable option to try and get a prospect for him?

    We need another lefty in the pen. Boone Logan can't carry on his own.
