Feliciano set for MRI after disappointing throwing session

Notes, Quotes · Feliciano set for MRI after disappointing throwing session · Roster Report

The Yankees were hoping that Pedro Feliciano would take his first step toward a return Tuesday. Instead, he's headed back to the MRI tube.

The left-hander played catch Tuesday, his first such session since March 27, but he continues to feel the same discomfort near his left rotator cuff that he has since spring training.

"It's not really pain, it's just like a pinch when I throw," Feliciano said. "That's the only thing. No pain at all. I don't feel bad, it's just that the doctor checked me and he said he wants to do another test."

Feliciano, who led the majors in total appearances over the past four seasons, signed a two-year, $8 million deal with the Yankees this winter. This is the first time the left-hander has been on the disabled list during his career.

Feliciano was hoping that Tuesday's throwing session would kick-start his rehab process, one that should take a few weeks once he's free of discomfort. But after he threw, it was clear that he was not ready to take that next step.

"He said it was similar," manager Joe Girardi said. "It's a concern, because we were hoping after these two weeks that he would be able to take the next step, then the next step. We're just not there yet."
