Feliciano likely to miss Opening Day

The immediate news out of today’s pregame session with Joe Girardi is that Pedro Feliciano is almost certainly going to open on the disabled list. He was supposed to throw today but his arm didn’t feel good, so the session was cancelled.

Without him, it seems likely that Steve Garrison will make the Opening Day lineup. Garrison has been pretty solid this spring. He’s a lefty who could also pitch multiple innings, and he’s on the 40-man (a significant issue considering the Yankees already need to find room for two pitchers, a catcher and Eric Chavez).

Speaking of which, something is in the works with Romulo Sanchez. Girardi couldn’t go into specifics, but it sounds like he could be traded, possibly at some point today.
