The Yankees spot in the left-handed relief market

Hardly a surprise at this point that the Yankees have agreed to a deal with Pedro Feliciano. Things have been pointing that way for a while now, some of them dating back to mid-November.

Feliciano led the National League in appearances the past three seasons, and he didn’t allow a left-handed home run in 2010. His career slash line against left-handers is .214/.282/.297. He’s good at what he does, but the contract is a bit of a surprise.

Some left-handed reliever signings this winter:

Scott Downs, Angels: three years, $15 million
Pedro Feliciano, Yankees: two years, $8 million
Randy Choate, Marlins: two years, $2.5 million
George Sherrill, Braves: one year, $1.2 million
J.P. Howell, Rays: one year, $1.1 million
Dennys Reyes, Phillies: one year, $1.1 million
Brian Tallet, Cardinals: one year, $750,000
