Mets Pitcher Feliciano Returns to Mound Wearing Heart Monitor

New York Mets pitcher Pedro Feliciano has been cleared to return to baseball as long as he wears a heart monitor on the field, the team said.

Feliciano, 36, was diagnosed with left ventricular noncompaction, a rare genetic condition, according to a statement by his agent Melvin Roman.

“If his condition was serious, where the experts had determined for him not to play baseball anymore, I am sure he would not return to the mound,” Roman said.

Feliciano, who missed the first week of the Grapefruit League when his physical revealed a heart anomaly, will be worked back into the pitching schedule as he seeks to secure a spot on the Major League Baseball team’s roster.

A member of the Mets from 2002-04 and 2006-10, Feliciano set the franchise record for appearances with 92 in 2010. After signing a two-year deal with the New York Yankees, he had left shoulder surgery in 2011.

Feliciano signed a minor league deal with the Mets this winter worth $1 million if he makes the big league club, according to the team’s website.
