NEW YORK -- Yankees left-hander Pedro Feliciano will put off shoulder surgery for at least 1½ months.

Sidelined since spring training, Feliciano was examined Monday in Pensacola, Fla., by Dr. James Andrews, who recommended a six-week program of a shoulder strengthening.

New York said Feliciano will remain with the team during the rehabilitation process. The Yankees said last week that Feliciano has a torn capsule in his left shoulder and might need season-ending surgery.
