Twins agree to terms with Mike Pelfrey on 2-year contract
CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman reports that the Twins have re-upped with RHP Mike Pelfrey.
This offseason, the Twins have already added Phil Hughes and Ricky Nolasco to the rotation, and now, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com, they've agreed to terms with right-hander Mike Pelfrey on a two-year contract. Heyman adds that the deal will guarantee Pelfrey $11 million with the chance to make another $3.5 million in incentives.
Pelfrey underwent Tommy John surgery in May of 2012, and last season he logged a 5.19 ERA (78 ERA+) and 1.91 K/BB in 152 2/3 innings for the Twins. For his career, the 29-year-old owns a 4.48 ERA, 90 ERA+ and 1.64 K/BB ratio. The Twins' hope is that the numbers will improve as he gets further removed from surgery.
