Pedro shut down

Left handed reliever Pedro Feliciano has been shut down for at least three weeks after a small hole was found in his heart.  After leaving the Mets for a more lucrative contract with the cross town Yankees, Pedro missed his entire contract due to shoulder injuries.  He has not pitched in the majors since 2010 but says he feels healthy,  the Mets have shut him down as a precaution until they can get a definitive diagnosis...

"With respect to his comment, that he has a hole in his heart, I don't think that's clear at this point," Alderson said. "What we need to do is wait over the next couple of weeks until there's a final diagnosis." source
