Los Angeles Dodgers
Feliciano was originally picked in the 36th round of the 1997 Major League Baseball draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers as a draft-and-follow player. He signed in May 1998 and debuted as a professional with the short-season Yakima Bears that summer. He batted .305 with 26 RBI, and stole 34 bases in 44 attempts in 77 games, finishing four steals behind Northwest League leader Juan Pierre. Feliciano led the Northwest League in at-bats with 302, outfield putouts with 191, and outfield double plays.
In 1999, Feliciano played for the Advanced-A Vero Beach Dodgers and he stole 20 bases in 30 tries. He played for the Class-A Advanced San Bernardino Stampede in 2000 and batted .289, stealing 31 bases while being caught 11 times. He fielded .996, leading California League outfielders.
Feliciano spent 2001 back at Vero Beach and hit .262, stealing 22 bases in 32 attempts. Feliciano again led his league's outfielders in fielding percentage, this time handling 284 chances without an error.
He began 2003 even worse than he had done in the summer of '02, hitting .138 and 4 RBI in 37 games. He was released by Dodgers on May 29.
