How Tall Is Mario Feliciano?
Mario Feliciano’s height is 1.85 m.
Feliciano has been the subject of much speculation for some time, thanks in large part to his outstanding 2019 season with the Carolina Mudcats, during which he slashed.
He hit 273/.324/.477 with 19 home runs and 81 runs batted in. Despite not playing in the lower leagues in 2020, he spent time at the Brewers’ alternate training facility.
Feliciano received a phone call on his 22nd birthday this year informing him that he had been added to the Brewers’ 40-man roster.
The Brewers decided it was vital to protect Feliciano from being picked by another team since he was Rule 5 draft eligible this offseason.
Feliciano has been working everyday with long-time rival catcher Yadier Molina, according to a recent interview with MLB.com.
While I still cringe when I hear Molina’s name, I know he’s a wealth of baseball knowledge, suggestions, and methods, and Feliciano is getting to pick his brain on a regular basis!
In the video, Feliciano discusses how, despite the fact that it’s 2019, he’s still striking out at a higher rate than he sets for himself.
He struck out in 28.8% of his at-bats this season. This is one area of his offensive game to keep an eye on in the future.
There are six catchers on the Brewers’ 40-man roster right now. In 2021, Manny Pina and Omar Narvaez are most likely to start at catcher.
Pina is a consistent performer, particularly on defense, but considering his poor offensive performance in 2020, Narvaez may be on a short leash.
If Narvaez struggles again, this could open the door for Feliciano to join the Brewers.
Feliciano’s calling card, in the end, is the bat. As a high-ranked prospect in the Brewers system, he has a chance to make his MLB debut in 2021 and depending on how things go, he may be able to stay in the organization.
