Twins | Mike Pelfrey trending upwards
Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey (elbow) has a 3.35 ERA since June 1, and he has lasted at least six innings in six of his past seven starts. His shortest outing during the span was 5 2/3 innings. June 1 marked the 13th month since Pelfrey had Tommy John surgery, and his elbow finally appears back to normal. Over the past two months, his fastball has consistently clocked at 93-94 mph.
Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey is on a one-year deal, so the Twins could potentially dangle him at the trade deadline to see if they can get something in return, even though he has made it known he would like to remain in the Twin Cities. His agent is Scott Boras, so it's likely his representation might seek a bigger payday at season's end, pricing the cost-conscious Twins out.
