Pelfrey allowed five runs on six hits and two walks with one strikeout over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday against Boston.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the sixth time already this season Pelfrey has allowed five or more runs in just 20 starts -- a 30 percent rate. Pelfrey has now allowed 148 hits in just 110.1 innings this season, and his 1.80 WHIP is the worst in the major leagues by a long shot. Second is Pittsburgh's Jon Niese, all the way down at 1.57.

Pelfrey (3-9) notched a rare win Thursday, limiting the White Sox to one run on eight hits and a walk over 5.1 innings. He struck out just one.

EDGE Analysis

Shane Greene came in and finished off the sixth inning after Pelfrey put two men on, and then the game went into a rain delay and was ultimately called with the Tigers holding a 2-1 edge. Pelfrey has given up just a single run in three of his last four outings, but has also been notably disaster-prone thanks to the incredible amount of contact he allows. That doesn't add up to a fantasy-friendly formula.

Pelfrey (2-9) allowed five runs on four hits over 1.2 innings in a loss to the Royals on Saturday. He also walked four and didn't strike out a batter.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran can't seem to get any luck. He only allowed one run in his last two outings before the break, but he took a loss and a no-decision in those starts. Pelfrey just didn't have it Saturday, as he took his ninth loss, which ties him for ninth-most in baseball, by throwing the shortest outing of his season. He also has two victories with a 4.95 ERA, 1.76 WHIP, 42 strikeouts versus 42 walks in 100.0 innings. Pelfrey will try again Thursday against the White Sox.

Pelfrey was chased from the mound after just 1.2 innings Saturday against the Royals. He gave up four hits and five earned runs, and walked four.

EDGE Analysis

It was Pelfrey's shortest outing of the season and second shortest of his career. He'd tossed two quality outings earlier in July, but he simply could not find the strike zone Saturday. Pelfrey's WHIP and ERA ballooned to 1.76 and 4.95, respectively, with the outing.

Pelfrey (2-8) took the loss Friday versus the Blue Jays despite giving up only one earned run on six hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty got absolutely no run support, sinking what was an admirable performance against a potent Blue Jays lineup. Pelfrey gave up only one earned run for the second straight start, and has now lowered his ERA from 6.23 to 4.58 over the last two months, despite some hiccups along the way. His 2-8 record is therefore somewhat deceiving, and he'll look to continue building on his last pair of outings in his first post-All-Star-break start.

Pelfrey (2-7) allowed just one run on six hits and three walks in 6.1 innings Sunday, striking out three, but came away with a no-decision in a 5-1 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

He was actually on the hook for the loss until the Tigers scored three runs in the eighth inning and tacked on two more in the ninth. It was just Pelfrey's fourth quality start of the season in 17 trips to the mound, but it did shave his ERA back down to 4.78. His next start will come next weekend in Toronto.

Despite giving up four runs on 12 hits over 5.1 innings, Pelfrey (2-7) got the win Tuesday against the Marlins. He issued one free pass and struck out one.

EDGE Analysis

Pelfrey wasn't as bad Tuesday as we've seen him this season, but the veteran certainly wasn't good either. Opponents are hitting a ridiculous .337 against Pelfrey and his 1.74 WHIP is worst among qualifying starters. The right-hander continues to hang onto his job by a thread, and he'll make his next start Sunday in Tampa.

Manager Brad Ausmus said Wednesday that Pelfrey will be available out of the bullpen in the coming days, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pelfrey is penciled in as the starter for Tuesday's game against Miami, but that won't prevent manager Brad Ausmus from using him out of the pen if need be in the coming days. Anibal Sanchez and Pelfrey appear to be vying for the fifth spot in the Tigers' rotation, and Pelfrey's availability out of the bullpen in the coming days is not necessarily a ringing endorsement of his standing as a starter. Still, as it stands, Pelfrey is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Marlins.

Pelfrey's next start has been pushed to Tuesday, June 28 against the Marlins, MLB.com's Jason Beck reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Tigers are giving Daniel Norris and Anibal Sanchez starts this week, as they continue to search for a reliable fifth starter, so Pelfrey will be pushed back to next week. He has been below replacement level this year, so it's always possible Norris and Sanchez could bump Pelfrey from the rotation long term.

Pelfrey gave up six runs on 12 hits and a walk with three strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Monday against Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Pelfrey has now given up a ridiculous 103 hits in just 76.1 innings, and this marks the second time he has allowed at least 10 hits in his past six starts. He allowed two more home runs to bring his total to 12 in 14 starts this season, and that's a bad combination with all the baserunners he allows. Pelfrey's ERA is up to 5.19 -- about what you would expect from somebody with a 38:31 K:BB.
