Twins | Mike Pelfrey in full swing

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey (elbow) will be treated like the rest of the pitchers this spring, and he's already thrown off a mound 40 times since Tommy John surgery, including six times off a mound since mid-January. The team plans to limit him to around 180 innings this year, however. "If the season started tomorrow, I would have worked up to be ready at this point," Pelfrey said. "Realistically, after 7 1/2 months, I threw 90 pitches to hitters, so I could pitch (now). They told me the other day, 'No restrictions. You're on the schedule with everybody else.' That's what I wanted."
