Adiós, Señor Happy: Feliz Signs With Padres
Riversharks 3rd baseman Pedro Feliz has signed with the San Diego Padres of the National League. The 36 year-old veteran, a member of the World Series Champion 2008 Philadelphia Phillies, had been the everyday 3rd baseman for the Sharks since he joined the team in May. In 72 games this season, Feliz batted .298 with 11 home runs and 45 RBI. His OPS was a best on the team .842.
Feliz is the fifth Riversharks player to be signed by an MLB club since the season began. He'll be reunited with former Sharks outfielder Drew Macias when he suits up later this week for the AAA Tuscon Padres.
