Joe Girardi was cryptic in announcing that Pedro Feliciano’s MRI did not come back clean. It sounds like Feliciano has a serious shoulder injury, but Girardi would not go into detail.
“He’s got a damaged shoulder,” Girardi said. “In fairness to you, I’m going to give you that. The MRI did not come back good. He has a damaged shoulder. He has a shoulder injury. In fairness to the player, he needs to talk about it with our doctors and the agents and decide what the next course of action is.”
That sounds like surgery, but again, Girardi wouldn’t go into specifics. Pressed on the issue, Girardi once again said Feliciano needs to talk things over with his agent and the team doctors — and his family, Girardi added — before deciding what’s next.
“He was throwing the ball in spring training and didn’t have any problems, and after the one day he had a problem,” Girardi said. “I can’t tell you exactly when it happened.”
