|Mike Pelfrey might pitch before Sunday's start|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Wednesday starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey remains on track to start Sunday against the Tigers after being limited to two innings Tuesday because of a rain delay. Gardenhire, however, didn't rule out the possibility of Pelfrey pitching before his start Sunday.
"We wouldn't want to do that with him, but we've talked about different scenarios," Gardenhire said of Pelfrey starting Friday, per MLB.com. "Maybe sling him in the middle before somebody else starts. But we'll talk about that and straighten that out as we go along here."

(5/22/13) Twins starter Mike Pelfrey had his start cut short due to a rain delay Tuesday against the Braves.
Pelfrey gave up a run-scoring double to Freddie Freeman and a run-scoring single to Brian McCann in the opening frame. He pitched a scoreless inning in the second before he was pulled after a 1-hour, 26-minute rain delay. The right-hander was charged with two runs and four hits over two innings of work as he failed to factor in the decision. He struck out one and walked one in a 5-4 defeat in extras.
Pelfrey is scheduled to make his next start Sunday at Detroit. He is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in two starts against the Tigers this season.

(5/15/13) Twins starter Mike Pelfrey showed his inconsistencies Wednesday against the White Sox. Pelfrey, who had pitched so well in his previous two starts, couldn't even record an out in the fifth inning.
Pelfrey was victimized by Adam Dunn and Dayan Viciedo homers as he allowed five earned runs on eight hits and two walks over just four innings. He struck out two but needed 91 pitches to record just 12 outs. He took the loss to fall to 3-4 on the season with a 6.57 ERA.
The Minnesota starter had allowed just four runs over his previous two starts for a 1-0 record over 12 innings with eight strikeouts. He's allowed four homers on the year, but they have come in just two of his eight starts.
Pelfrey, who has largely been mediocre this year with a 1.77 WHIP and .339 batting average against, will remain in the rotation, according to manager Ron Gardenhire, MLB.com reports. He will make his next scheduled start Tuesday at Atlanta during an interleague series.
|Bullpen blows potential win for Mike Pelfrey|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/11/13) Twins starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey posted his second straight quality start Friday against the Orioles, surrendering three earned runs on nine hits and one walk and striking out one and leaving the game with a 6-3 lead. However, the bullpen denied Pelfrey the win, giving him his first no-decision of the season.
Pelfrey, who struck out just one batter for the fourth time in seven starts, lowered his ERA to 6.03 on the year, which he'll take along with a 3-3 record into a home game against the White Sox Wednesday.

|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/5/13) Twins starter Mike Pelfrey shut Cleveland down over six innings Sunday, as he allowed one run on four hits and struck out seven.
It was the first time Pelfrey had held a team under four runs since he threw 5 1/3 with two unearned runs allowed against Detroit on April 4, his season debut. It was his best start in nearly every way; he set season bests in innings, strikeouts, hits and runs allowed. His ERA fell to 6.75 as he earned his third win.
|Mike Pelfrey had his season cut by Tommy John surgery in 2012 as he made just three starts for the Mets. He posted a 2.29 ERA in those outings and underwent the procedure in May. The right-hander expects to be ready for spring training and signed a one-year, incentive-laden deal with the Twins in the offseason and is expected to help fill out their rotation. Pelfrey has had a couple of decent campaigns pitching in spacious Citi Field, but his inconsistencies have hindered his value in Fantasy. Still, he should see some decent run support in Minnesota and at age 28, still has plenty of time to get back on track. Pitchers usually come back stronger after Tommy John surgery so keep an eye on his progress during the spring. Owners should plan on targeting Pelfrey in some deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats on Draft Day. (Updated 1/2/13)|
