Injured Yankees reliever Feliciano might miss season

NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York Yankees left-handed reliever Pedro Feliciano may be done for the season after tests showed a capsule tear in his left shoulder that might require surgery, the Major League Baseball team said Thursday.

Feliciano, who had been counted on to retire left-handed hitters in high-pressure, late-inning situations, was signed before the season to a two-year, $8 million contract.

The 34-year-old pitcher, who felt shoulder pain in spring training, is seeking another opinion before making a decision.

"In all likelihood, we're looking at a significant surgery," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters.
