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.

Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey will join the starting rotation to replace SP Ervin Santana, who received an 80-game suspension Friday, April 3.
Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey is worth a speculative/desperation add in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, but his upside is limited. For his career, Pelfrey has a 4.56 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP and 5.2 K/9. He could also have some flier appeal in the right matchups for FantasyScore players, too. And it is worth noting the Twins scored the seventh most runs in the majors last season, so run support might not be an issue.

Minnesota Twins RP Mike Pelfrey is open to a trade following his demotion to the bullpen and losing out on the fifth starter spot. Pelfrey is not demanding a trade, however.
Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey's fantasy value took a hit following his demotion, as he would have had some value even as a fifth starter. He could be a stash candidate depending on if a trade takes place or one of the regular starters gets injured, however, so keep an eye on him in deep AL leagues.
