The Yankees added free-agent lefty reliever, Pedro Feliciano this week. Feliciano agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal a club option for 2013. Feliciano joins the Bombers after spending the five previous seasons with the Mets. Over the last three seasons, Feliciano has led the league in appearances (86, 88, and 92, respectively). Feliciano held lefties to a .211 BAA in 2010, but was not good against righties (.337). After facing Chase Utley and Ryan Howard for half of a decade, Feliciano should help contain Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford.

Normally, I don’t like multi-year deals for relievers, especially relievers that have a lot of millage on their arms. However, Joe Girardi will not tax his bullpen like Jerry Manuel did. With Damaso Marte unlikely to pitch for the majority of the 2011 season, the Yankees needed a second reliever to go along with Boone Logan.

While the addition of Feliciano is good for the Yankees, Zack Greinke has been dealt to the Milwaukee Brewers. Greinke, the 2009 Cy Young Award winner, recently demanded a trade from the Royals. The Royals and Nationals apparently agreed to a deal, but Greinke had the Nationals on his ‘No Trade’ list. The Brewers came in last night, made a deal, and the young righty agreed to call Miller Park home.

Greinke apparently would have accepted a deal to the Yankees, but the Yankees never got close with an offer.

While many of us believed that Greinke simply wasn’t a fit, another top pitching option is off the board. Let’s see what the Yankees will do to strengthen their rotation.

Yankee fans, are you sad to see Greinke come off the board?
