Feliciano advised to begin shoulder strengthening program

This from the Yankees:

“LHP Pedro Feliciano was seen today by Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla. Dr. Andrews recommended a conservative treatment program for the next six weeks. Feliciano will begin a shoulder strengthening program immediately, and is expected to remain with the team during the rehabilitation process.”

Feliciano said last week that he was leaning toward having season-ending surgery, and the Yankees expected Andrews to concur with that assessment.

The fact that Andrews didn’t recommend surgery immediately is a good sign for Feliciano and the Yankees, but they still have to proceed as though they won’t get him back this year. With Feliciano out, Boone Logan remains the lone left-hander in New York’s bullpen.

Meanwhile, the Yankees have two more expensive lefties (Feliciano, two years at $8 million; and Damaso Marte, one more year at $4 million plus a $250,000 buyout for 2012) inactive and on the payroll. Then again, you might make the case that Marte already earned his money just by getting big outs in the 2009 postseason.

This is worth repeating:
