Via Ken Davidoff of Newsday:

The Yankees met today with the representatives for free-agent LHP Pedro Feliciano.

Nothing much to this. This just confirms an earlier rumor that the Yankees were going to meet with him. We do know that they are looking to upgrade their bullpen and since the Red Sox traded for lefty Adrian Gonzalez, the need for a lefty reliever is more important than ever.

Feliciano has had decent numbers over the past three years, but his splits really make him seem like a big time reliever. He absolutely dominates lefties holding them to a .211 batting average against and a 1.09 WHIP last season. He has similar numbers over his career at .214 and 1.06 respectively.
