MIKE PELFREY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mike Pelfrey Gets Two Years from the Tigers

The Tigers just signed Mike Pelfrey to a two-year deal worth $16 million. The big right-hander has a good fastball, a penchant for licking his fingers, and a split-finger that’s decent for grounders, but he still shows up on the bottom of an important leaderboard. Despite that, he’s been an average major league player four times in his career, and he’s projected to be worth...

However, on Saturday, he requested a baseball as a memento for a dubious distinction.

Mike Pelfrey has been everything the Twins wanted

The Minnesota Twins are somehow eight games over .500 and just one game back of the first-place Kansas City Royals in the tough American League Central. Their offense has been unbelievably clutch and their pitching has exceeded expectations. Much of that has to do with a man named Mike Pelfrey. As soon as the Minnesota Twins announced Pelfrey would take suspended Ervin Santana...

The Twins need Mike Pelfrey to step up

Mike Pelfrey, welcome to the Minnesota Twins starting rotation…again. On Friday, Major League Baseball handed Twins’ starter Ervin Santana an 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs, thus opening a spot in the rotation for Pelfrey. While losing a strong No. 2 starter in Santana is a pretty big punch-to-the-gut for a team right on the brink of turning the corner...

After latest poor outing, Pelfrey could lose spot in rotation

MINNEAPOLIS -- Nothing seems to be improving for Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey.

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 […]

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...
