Mike Pelfrey SP MIN 2 Days

Mike Pelfrey gave up five runs -- four earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Thursday in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays.

Pelfrey showed better stuff this spring than he did at any point during 2013, but it hasn't translated into regular-season results; he's given up 13 earned runs and walked 12 over 14 2/3 innings in his three starts. As limited as his upside is, the Twins should go ahead and send him to the pen if he doesn't rebound in his next couple of starts.

Mike Pelfrey was tagged for six runs over five innings Thursday afternoon in a loss to the Athletics.

Pelfrey gave up nine hits, including a pair of homers. He also walked four batters against three strikeouts. The veteran right-hander may eat innings for the Twins this year, but he's not going to provide any fantasy value to go along with it.

Mike Pelfrey pitched three scoreless innings, striking out four, in the Twins' 4-1 win over the Orioles on Tuesday.

The Twins scheduled Pelfrey, Scott Diamond and Kyle Gibson to throw three innings apiece today, and that's what they all did, rather successfully. Pelfrey wraps up a strong spring with a 1.98 ERA. We're not convinced that he'll have any fantasy value at all, but he should be significantly better this year than he was in his first season back from Tommy John.

Mike Pelfrey yielded one run in 3 1/3 innings Friday in a no-decision versus an Orioles split-squad.

Only because the wind was blowing from right to left. Quintin Berry made a bid for a grand slam in the second, but the breeze kept it in the ballpark, allowing Pelfrey, who didn't face a single likely regular today, to maintain his nice spring ERA. He's at 2.53 right now.

Mike Pelfrey allowed two runs on three hits in 2 1/3 innings against the Orioles on Wednesday.

On the plus side, Pelfrey didn't walk a batter and struck out two. Pelfrey was clean in his first time out, but the hiccup Wednesday raised his spring ERA to 4.15 through 4 1/3 innings of work. The big right-hander should slot in as the Twins' No. 4 starter this season.

Twins re-signed RHP Mike Pelfrey to a two-year, $11 million contract.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported news of an agreement earlier this month, but it's now official. Pelfrey returned from Tommy John surgery to post an ugly 5.19 ERA over 152 2/3 innings this past season, but the Twins apparently believes there's some more upside left. In all likelihood, he'll just be a backend innings-eater.

The Twins have signed Mike Pelfrey to a two-year, $11 million deal, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

The agreement includes performance bonuses that could bring the total amount to $14.5 million. Pelfrey posted a 5.19 ERA in 152 2/3 innings with the Twins this past season, but the team obviously liked something that they saw. Pelfrey rejoins a rotation that has improved from 2013 with the additions of Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes.

La Velle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that the Twins have upped their two-year, $10 million offer to Mike Pelfrey to around $12 million.

The Giants and Rangers also have shown interest in Pelfrey, but it's hard to imagine he'll get a better deal than that after posting 5.19 ERA and 101/53 K/BB ratio over 152 2/3 innings this past season with Minnesota. The Twins are obviously banking on some improvement as Pelfrey gets another year removed from Tommy John surgery.

The Twins initially offered Pelfrey a two-year, $10 million deal, but the two sides have continued to negotiate. Neal writes that something could get done as soon as Thursday, but a deal might not be finalized until next week.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Twins are continuing to talk to free agent right-hander Mike Pelfrey.

The Twins reportedly offered Pelfrey a two-year, $10 million contract earlier this winter, but things might have changed after the additions of Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes. It's unclear whether the club will entertain bringing him back if they are also able to sign Bronson Arroyo. The 29-year-old right-hander posted a 5.19 ERA and 101/53 K/BB ratio over 152 2/3 innings this past season with Minnesota.
