Yankees’ Feliciano has rotator cuff surgery

SEATTLE – Pedro Feliciano’s two-year contract with the Yankees could end without the left-hander having thrown a regular-season pitch for the club.

The Yankees announced that Feliciano had left rotator cuff surgery on Sept. 8, following an unsuccessful attempt to rehab a torn capsule.

The procedure will threaten his 2012 season as well, and Yankees manager Joe Girardi has raised the possibility that such a serious injury at this late stage could actually end Feliciano’s career.

Feliciano, 35, signed a two-year, $8 million deal with the Yankees over the winter, crossing boroughs from the Mets.

He led the Major Leagues in relief outings in each of the last three seasons, setting a record with 266 total appearances over the three-year stretch.

  • LHP Steve Garrison has cleared waivers and was outrighted to Double-A Trenton. He was designated for assignment on Sunday to create room on the 40-man roster for catcher Austin Romine.

Game 94: Yankees vs. Rays

ST. PETERSBURG — It’s possible (though not likely) that two Yankees could make their Major League debut at Tropicana Field tonight.

Brandon Laird, called up yesterday after Ramiro Pena‘s appendectomy, is finally active after a flight delay forced him to arrive late yesterday. On Tuesday, it was lefty Steve Garrison who was called up from Double-A Trenton to take the place of righty Sergio Mitre, who’s battling a bacterial infection but was placed on the DL because of shoulder tendinitis.

More on all that soon, but here are the lineups prior to what most will agree is a very important start for Bartolo Colon …

YANKEES (56-37)
Derek Jeter, SS
Curtis Granderson, CF
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Robinson Cano, 2B
Nick Swisher, RF
Jorge Posada, DH
Russell Martin, C
Brett Gardner, LF
Eduardo Nunez, 3B

Pitching: RH Colon (6-5, 3.47 ERA)

RAYS (50-44)
Johnny Damon, DH
Ben Zobrist, RF
Evan Longoria, 3B
Casey Kotchman, 1B
B.J. Upton, CF
Robinson Chirinos, C
Sean Rodriguez, 2B
Sam Fuld, LF
Reid Brignac, SS

Pitching: RH Jeremy Hellickson (8-7, 3.21 ERA)

Here is the lineup as the Yankees take their last bus trip of the spring, a 2 1/2 hour trek to Fort Myers, Fla., and they’ll see a familiar face on the other side of the diamond… remember, the Yankees actually had some interest in signing Carl Pavano (again!) as a free agent this winter…

  • Joe Girardi told reporters today in Fort Myers that it is unlikely Pedro Feliciano (left triceps soreness) will be able to avoid the disabled list. Feliciano was supposed to try throwing today but the session had to be cancelled, and Girardi said it is difficult to envision a situation where Feliciano is ready for Opening Day. Girardi named lefty Steve Garrison, 24, as a potential replacement to begin the season.
  • Romulo Sanchez was listed on the travel roster for today’s game but did not make the trip. It’s possible that the Yankees could have a trade in the works. Sanchez is out of Minor League options.
  • Right-handed pitcher Lance Pendleton has been tendered back to the Yankees by the Astros. Pendleton will be assigned to minor league camp.
  • Chris Dickerson (cramping) and Curtis Granderson (oblique strain) are taking BP this afternoon in Tampa, though Girardi said it is too early to know anything about their conditions.
  • Girardi on Eric Chavez’s spring: “You saw the bat speed. Right when he got to camp, you saw the bat speed in Chavez. If he’s healthy, he can help us. He’s not really going to forget how to hit. It’s just if you’re physically capable of hitting. And he looked great.”
