MIKE PELFREY NEWS

Preview: Twins vs. Red Sox

The Minnesota Twins' turnaround started with a five-game winning streak, and now superb pitching is a big reason why they're on the verge of matching it. The Twins look to improve on the AL's best home record by sweeping a series from the Red Sox for the first time in nine years Wednesday. Minnesota (27-18) has reeled off 18 wins in 24 games, outscoring opponents 21-7 while winning...

Tommy Milone proves too good for AAA

Trevor May looks like a much improved version of the player who made his Major League debut last season, Mike Pelfrey has been far better then his low expectations. This leaves Minnesota Twins lefty Tommy Milone without a spot in the team’s starting rotation. With Milone already looking like a possible odd man out, the impeding return of Ervin Santana in early July from a PED suspension...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, May 11

Friday’s Official Lineup was assigned a risk level of 6 because of the security of the day’s featured starting pitcher, Gio Gonzalez. I also loved the security of the Indians stack against Mike Pelfrey and, almost as important, a bad Twins bullpen. Pelfrey was good, holding the Indians to 2 ER over 7 IP, but he didn’t strike out a single batter. In fact, the Twins as a pitching...

Fantasy Baseball Nightly: May 8th, 2015

 If you read only one thing….. Remember when everyone was worried about the Washington Nationals and how they’ve gotten off to a slow start? After their win tonight they have returned to the .500 mark (15-15) and it’s not exactly like the NL East is bastion of tremendous playoff contenders. The Mets have gotten off to a great start, but few expect that to last. Of course...

Indians take on red-hot Twins

The Minnesota Twins know there's still a ton of time left in the season, but they can't help being excited about the way they're playing. The same can't be said about the Cleveland Indians, whose inability to string together victories has them sitting at the bottom of the AL. Minnesota looks for an eighth win in nine contests Friday night when it visits Cleveland to begin a three...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, May 8

Yesterday Chris Archer flopped while the Rangers stayed hot, and Brian McCann hit at least two balls on the screws but right into the shift. Ender Inciarte had a home run reversed and turned into a double, and overall the Official Lineup scored 94.05 points, finishing 8,876th-of-24,916. It wasn’t good enough for a GPP cash but it placed in the double-ups in what was a down offensive...

The Twins are over .500. The hell?

Though being one game over .500 isn't exactly blowing up the league, the Twins had extremely low expectations with a Vegas over/under of 70.5 wins, so being on pace to win something like 84 games represents a substantially better season than expected.  One can't help but wonder how they got here, and if we can expect it to last and maybe see some semi-meaningful baseball in September...

Twins rally in seventh inning to tame Tigers

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Mike Pelfrey turned in his second consecutive strong start, Kurt Suzuki had two hits and the go-ahead single in the seventh inning, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Tuesday night. Pelfrey (2-0) begrudgingly started the season in the bullpen after spending most of 2014 on the disabled list. He struck out seven and allowed one earned run on...

Indians Series Summary No. 4: L-W-L and gratitude for picture-in-picture

The good news going into the Cleveland Indians’ fourth series of 2015 is that they weren’t scheduled to face any left-handed starters. The bad news is that it didn’t seem to matter. They still couldn’t hit. Over the three games in Minneapolis, the Twins started Mike Pelfrey, Phil Hughes, and Trevor May, all righties. They all had solid starts and between them and the Twins’...

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...

Minnesota Twins News and Notes: Week of 4/5

Here is a wrap up of the last week of news for the Minnesota Twins. On Saturday, the Twins announced that Tommy Milone will be the fifth starting pitcher. The move means that Mike Pelfrey will begin the season in the bullpen. According to Rhett Bollinger of mlb.com, Pelfrey wants to be traded as opposed to pitching out of the bullpen. It seems like Pelfrey has a legitimate gripe...
