This doesn't sound good but also it is hard to determine how big the hole is and where it is.

They'll do an Echo and then put whats called a 24 hour Holter monitor that will detect any abnormal heart rhythms over that period. If the hole is on what is called a "conduction" pathway- meaning where the electrical signal of the heart goes through- I wouldn't be surprised if Feliciano hangs up the jersey. Too much at risk for a heart attack or other life threatening situation during game situation.
