VIERA, Fla. (AP) - New York Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano has been cleared to resume baseball activity while wearing a heart monitor.
Mets manager Terry Collins says he thinks Feliciano still will have enough time in spring training to get ready for the start of the season.
The 36-year-old Feliciano was with the New York Yankees for the last two seasons but didn't pitch because of shoulder trouble. He returned to the Mets in the offseason.
Feliciano visited a heart clinic in Minneapolis this week for tests. The exam showed he had a rare genetic condition.
Feliciano said in a statement Thursday that the condition won't prevent him from pitching.
