Mets sign Feliciano to Minor League Deal, Settle with Ike Davis
The Mets said Monday that Feliciano had agreed to a minor league contract after two injury-plagued seasons across town with the Yankees. The 36-year-old left-hander never pitched in a game for the Yankees, spending two years of the disabled list because of a torn capsule in his left shoulder after signing an $8 million contract.
Feliciano had surgery Sept. 8, 2011, and made 10 injury rehabilitation appearances in the minors last year. He has a 1.23 ERA in seven games with Leones de Ponce of the Puerto Rican Winter League.
Eligible for arbitration for the first time, Davis gets $3,125,000, six times the $506,690 he earned last year when he hit .227 with 32 homers and 90 RBIs. He had asked for $3.7 million when players and teams swapped figures last week and had been offered $2,825,000.
The Mets announced the agreement Saturday.
Second baseman Daniel Murphy is the only Mets player remaining in arbitration. He asked for a raise from $512,196 to $3.4 million. The team offered $2.55 million.
Without an agreement, a hearing would be held next month.
