Yankees reportedly interested in Feliciano

This is coming from Ken Davidoff.

Apparently the Yankees have “expressed interest” in lefty reliever Pedro Feliciano. It makes sense given the fact Brian Cashman has openly admitted that he’s looking for a left-hander to join Boone Logan in the bullpen. Feliciano had some success with the Mets, and his splits against lefties are pretty impressive with a lot of strikeouts.

My guess would be that this depends entirely on the contract. Felciano clearly fits what the Yankees are trying to do, but he’s already 34 years old. Damaso Marte turned 34 in 2009, just after he signed his three-year contract, and that deal hasn’t worked out at all.*

* I feel like every mention of the Marte contract has to include a note that he was outstanding in last year’s postseason. Teams sign players in hopes that those players will help them win a World Series, and Marte did that, despite his regular season injuries and struggles.
