Tigers | Mike Pelfrey agrees with Tigers

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 09:44:09 -0800

Free-agent SP Mike Pelfrey (Twins) agreed to a two-year, $16 million deal with the Detroit Tigers Friday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey gave up a .304 batting average last season with a 4.26 ERA in a cavernous home ballpark. His 4.70 K/9 doesn't give much fantasy punch either. He'll be an AL-only option near the end of drafts.

Tigers | Mike Pelfrey could land with Detroit

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 09:01:16 -0800

Free-agent SP Mike Pelfrey (Twins) is close to signing a deal with the Detroit Tigers, according to multiple reports. Pelfrey went 6-11 with a 4.26 ERA for the Minnesota Twins last year.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey figures to round out Detroit's rotation if he agrees to a deal with them. The tall right-hander hasn't had an ERA under 4.00 over a full season since 2010, and he doesn't generate a ton of swings and misses (4.7 K/9 in 2015). Detroit can be a dangerous park for pitchers, too, so Pelfrey shouldn't attract any attention for owners in shallow mixed leagues.

Twins | Yanks have been tough on Mike Pelfrey

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 14:52:47 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey is 2-3 with a 5.28 ERA in five career starts against the New York Yankees, who he faces Tuesday, Aug. 18. Pelfrey's ERA in three career starts at Yankee Stadium is 7.00.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is definitely a pitcher to avoid on FantasyScore while starting in the Bronx against one of the higher scoring teams in all of baseball this season.

Twins | Mike Pelfrey turns it around

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 23:18:19 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey allowed one earned run, four hits and a walk with four strikeouts over seven innings in a win Wednesday, Aug. 12, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) entered 0-5 with a 6.22 ERA over his past 10 starts, so it will take more than one good start to get FantasyScore owners to trust him again.

Twins | Mike Pelfrey dominant at home

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:54:40 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey takes the ball Thursday, July 9, to start against the Detroit Tigers. He enters with a 3-1 record and 1.80 ERA in seven home starts while holding the opposition to a .235 batting average.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey ($5,600; or 11.2% of cap) has held his own against the Tigers, too, going 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA in two outings while striking out eight over 11 2/3 innings this season. Still, he faces off against David Price in what is a tough matchup, so Pelfrey is still not recommended in FantasyScore despite his strong home numbers.

Twins | Mike Pelfrey struggling

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 13:38:19 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey has thrown 24 1/3 innings in his last five starts with 23 runs allowed, 11 strikeouts and 13 walks. Opponents are hitting .387 against him.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has one foot on the mound and the other on a banana peel. With the return of Ervin Santana on Sunday, July 5, Pelfrey's time in the rotation may be on thin ice even though Trevor May went to the bullpen.

Twins | Mike Pelfrey looks for rebound

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 18:24:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey is the probable starter for Thursday, June 18, against the St. Louis Cardinals. He was blasted for eight runs, 11 hits and three walks with no homers over 3 2/3 innings in a loss at Texas.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey ($5,500; or 11.0% of cap) entered that start against the Rangers with four straight quality starts, allowing one or no runs during the span. Chalk up his June 13 outing as just one poor game and trust him, especially at home. He is 3-0 with a 1.48 ERA in five home starts this season.

Twins | Mike Pelfrey continues to shine

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 14:40:27 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey allowed eight hits in eight innings and struck out seven as the Twins shut out the Milwaukee Brewers, 2-0, on Sunday, June 7. He has yielded only three earned runs over his last four starts, spanning 28 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) won for the fifth time in seven starts and he is rapidly becoming the Twins' ace pitcher. Pelfrey should be in your lineup as long as he is producing at a high rate of success.

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 20:23:33 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey is expected to start Tuesday, June 2, against the Boston Red Sox after his start Monday, June 1, was rained out.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey ($5,200; or 10.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore since he’ll be up against the Red Sox on the road.

Twins | Mike Pelfrey starting Saturday

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 04:54:27 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey is on the hill Saturday, April 11, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey ($3,000, 6% of cap) will likely have a place in the rotation, barring injury or ineffectiveness, because of the injury to Ricky Nolasco and the suspension of Ervin Santana. This may not be an ideal start even with the low cost. The Twins' offense has been horrid at times, and White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija will be angry after a lackluster opening outing.
