MIKE PELFREY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey did something funky with his lips

Mike Pelfrey has some weird habits on the mound. The guys licks himself incessantly and was counted licking himself 89 times during a 2011 start. And when he’s not licking himself or the ball or his hand or whatever, he’s making funny motions with his lips. Is that how he settles himself down? It didn’t […]

Minnesota Twins: Relief pitching needs work

Pitching now takes the spotlight of concern, especially in the latter half of the game. It seems that either starting pitchers run...

'Mr. Enthusiasm' leads way as Indians triumph

CLEVELAND -- Happy Bropening Day, indeed. For five innings, I was wondering if Mike Pelfrey was going to do what Randy Johnson couldn't 20 years ago -- pitch a no-hitter against the Indians in their home opener. Carlos Santana's double to lead off the fifth squashed those hopes. Then in the sixth, they got to Pelfrey and took the lead. The one who delivered the game-winning...

Mike Pelfrey Poorly Tries to Pump Up His Alma Mater Wichita State Shockers

Mike Pelfrey spent several years in Queens as a member of my beloved Mets. As much as he often pained me with his on-field performance, he was always a stand-up guy. Pelfrey is now a member of the Minnesota Twins and pitched his college days at Wichita State. He’s a big Shockers backer. So, his teammates decided to take advantage of Big Pelf, who is generally fairly quiet and reserved...

The Minnesota Twins Played A Delightfully Mean Prank On Mike Pelfrey

Minnesota Twins pitcher and Wichita State alum Mike Pelfrey was probably pretty bummed to watch his beloved Shockers lose to the Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA Tournament, ending their undefeated season and run at a National Championship. He’s probably even more bummed because his manager, Ron Gardenhire, and teammate Glen Perkins decided to play a pretty hilarious prank on him...

Twins pull off great prank on Wichita State alum Mike Pelfrey

Minnesota Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey is a proud Wichita State alum, and before their brief run in the NCAA Tournament last week, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire called Pelfrey into his office under the guise of “calling the team to pump them up”. The only problem was that Pelfrey wasn’t talking to the Shockers – he was talking to his teammates in the Twins clubhouse. Here...

Notebook: Pelfrey vows to pick up the pace in 2014

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- At times last season, Mike Pelfrey's plodding pace on the mound put Twins fans to sleep. Of all major-league pitchers who threw at least 140 innings in 2013, Pelfrey had the eighth-slowest pace. Minnesota's right-hander averaged 24.6 seconds between pitches, according to FanGraphs, nearly three seconds slower than his career average. After Twins manager...

Twins' Pelfrey plans to take game to another level in 2014

MINNEAPOLIS -- In his first season with the Minnesota Twins, right-hander Mike Pelfrey was given a corner locker in the clubhouse, a spot typically reserved for a veteran. While Pelfrey was indeed entering his eighth season last year, he was still a newcomer in Minnesota. Yet it didn't take long for the Twins' younger players to gravitate toward Pelfrey, who served as a mentor...
