Eduardo Pérez, former player and analyst at ESPN, was the one who broke the news of Pedro Feliciano's death through his Twitter account.

Feliciano, who was only 45 years old and apparently died in his sleep, was a left-handed pitcher who stood out on the New York Mets between 2006 and 2010, having a record number of appearances during the 2008, 2009 and 2010 seasons among pitchers, with 86, 88 and 92 appearances respectively.

The Puerto Rican also leaves an impressive 344 appearance mark between 2007 and 2010, which earned him the nickname “Perpetual Pedro,” especially for his appearance in 36 consecutive games.

Although he was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1995 and spent seven years as a minor league player, he was picked up by the Mets in 2002, and it would be the only major league team he would play for in his career.

Feliciano also had a brief stint in the Japanese baseball league in 2005, being part of the Fukuoka Daiei. He returned to Brooklyn after a year to take them to the playoffs that year. His lifetime ERA was 3.33 across 484 games.

The Puerto Rico national baseball team also spoke out on social media, lamenting the death of one of its most iconic pitchers.
