Jon Heyman of CBS Sports was the first to report on Saturday evening that the Minnesota Twins, returning after an initial one-year deal with the Twins for the 2013 season. Pelfrey’s 2013 season was his first season fully removed from the infamous Tommy John surgery.
Mike Pelfrey had the following stat line in 2013:
5-13, 5.19 ERA, 1.552 WHIP, 152.2 Innings, 6.0 K/9, 10.8 H/9
Career Averages for Pelfrey:
4.48 ERA, 1.472 WHIP, 5.2 K/9, 10.1 H/9
This move does not necessarily take the Twins out of the Bronson Arroyo sweepstakes, but makes that more non-likely than likely.
Mike Pelfrey will be 30 years-old on Opening Day. Opening Day for the Twins is March 31, in the Windy City against the Chicago White Sox.
