Feliciano signed with the Cincinnati Reds for the 2002 season, but was traded to the New York Mets in August along with Brady Clark for Shawn Estes. On September 4, 2002, Feliciano made his Major League debut pitching two scoreless innings of relief against the Florida Marlins.
The Mets designated Feliciano for assignment to make room on their 40-man roster following the conclusion of the 2002 season, and he was claimed on waivers by the Detroit Tigers on October 11. Two months later on December 16, the Tigers unexpectedly released Feliciano.
Feliciano began his third stint with the Mets when he was re-signed on February 28, 2006, a couple of weeks after the beginning of spring training. Feliciano started the season with the Norfolk Tides to make up for the time he’d missed in spring training, but he was recalled on April 17 and became a permanent fixture in the Mets bullpen as a left-handed specialist. In 2008 and 2009, he operated in the bullpen as the Mets’ primary situational left-hander.
In 2007, he recorded his first career big-league save against the Philadelphia Phillies.In 2008, he led the majors in games pitched, with 86. In 58 of those games, the greatest number in the majors, he recorded fewer than three outs. He also led the majors in days pitched on zero days rest, with 36.On January 3, 2011, Feliciano signed a two-year deal worth approximately $8 million with the New York Yankees.
Early in the 2011 season, Feliciano began to experience soreness in his left shoulder and was placed on the disabled list. On April 25, orthopedist James Andrews recommended a six-week strengthening program for Feliciano. The Yankees front office revealed that the reason behind Feliciano’s injury was that the Mets had overused him within the recent years. It was eventually revealed that Feliciano had a torn anterior capsule and rotator cuff in his left shoulder, which required surgery, and ended his 2011 season.
Feliciano began the 2012 season on the 60-day disabled list in an effort to continue recovering from his shoulder surgery from the previous year. Late in the 2012 season between August and September, Feliciano was issued to rehab at the Double-A Trenton Thunder.Still, Feliciano failed to make an appearance with the Yankees for the entire 2012 year. After the season, his contract expired, and he left the Yankees without throwing a single pitch for the team.
