It's about the grip: Split the difference for Twins SP Mike Pelfrey
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It's not saying all that much that Twins starter Mike Pelfrey is having his finest season. His best ERA in nine previous years was 3.66 and his career mark is a poor 4.45.

But his comeback has been impressive, particularly considering he is coming off Tommy John surgery and that his lowest ERA since 2011 is 4.74.

The 31-year-old Pelfrey is now 5-4 with a 3.06 ERA. His hits-to-innings ratio of 88/85 1/3 is on pace to be his best ever and he has allowed just five home runs.

And he has Twins bullpen coach Eddie Guardado to thank for it. Guardado taught him a new grip on the split-finger fastball that has proven critical.

"I think it's made all the difference in the world," Pelfrey told Fox Sports. "...It's kind of given me that changeup or secondary pitch that I've kind of been lacking."

Pelfrey now boasts the lowest ERA in the Minnesota rotation. He has used his new split-finger often. He estimated that he used to throw it three or four times a game and is now up to about 20.

Twins SP Mike Pelfrey shelled for eight runs in 3 2/3 on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey endured his worst start of the season in Saturday's loss to the Rangers. Pelfrey was only able to last 3 2/3 innings, as he gave up eight runs on 11 hits, both season-highs. He walked three and did not record a strikeout, as his ERA ballooned to 3.18.

Pelfrey got hit with a rough fourth inning, as the Rangers scored six times to open the game up to 9-3. In that inning, Pelfrey served up a three-run home run to Mitch Moreland and a solo shot to Joey Gallo.

"It was a little bit of a different guy than what we've seen," Twins manager Paul Molitor said, per MLB.com. "His fastball was up and his split, he was trying to find it, but when he threw it over the plate it seemed to hang a little bit."

Pelfrey (5-3) will look to get back on track in his next start, scheduled for Thursday at home against the Cardinals.
