Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey makes first appearance out of the bullpen
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey threw one scoreless inning Sunday, sending the Orioles down in order. Pelfrey, who made his frustrations about the transition known, settled down a bit and felt somewhat comfortable in the appearance, reports MLB.com.

"It was good," Pelfrey said. "At the end of the day, I have a lot of respect for him. I got a lot of things off my chest, and he got a lot off his. So it was a very good discussion. Obviously, my emotions probably got the best of me yesterday. So I told him I'm going to be professional and go to the 'pen and give it everything I have."

He has made just four appearances out of the bullpen in his career compared to 183 starts.

"I wanted to see how fast I could do it, and it was surprising to me I only needed those 10-12 pitches," Pelfrey said. "So that was pretty good. I think the hardest part was playing catch before the game and then waiting around and doing it again."

Mike Pelfrey would welcome a trade from Twins
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

One day after being demoted to the bullpen, Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey said he would welcome a trade. 

Pelfrey didn't quite make a trade demand, but he told the Pioneer Press, "Obviously if some team realizes I'm healthy for the first time in years, and this is probably the best I've felt and thinks I can help them, let's do it. I think I showed them that I could start. If it happens, great. Let's go."

Twins GM Terry Ryan said neither Pelfrey nor agent Scott Boras has requested a trade from the team, per Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press

Frustrated Pelfrey loses rotation battle, demoted to Twins' bullpen
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey was unable to crack the starting rotation, and was demoted to the bullpen for the first time in his career, according to the Pioneer Press on Saturday.

Pelfrey told reporters he was frustrated because he doesn't believe he was outpitched this spring. The 6-foot-5 right-hander registered a 1.32 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP and a 7:2 K:BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings of work in Grapefruit League play.

He lost the spot to Tommy Milone, who posted a 4.50 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP and an 8:4 K:BB ratio over 14 innings.

Pelfrey revealed that he confronted the coaching staff and asked if the competition for the fifth rotation spot was actually open and was told him "yes," though he disagrees. According to the Pioneer Press, Pelfrey said he has not been given an indication that a trade is in the works and added that he would not approve an option to Triple-A.

"That won't happen," Pelfrey said.

Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey may be out of rotation mix
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey, who's fighting to crack the starting rotation, is scheduled to make his next on Saturday, however manager Paul Molitor would not comment Wednesday when asked if that was still the plan, reports TwinCities.com.

“We are in progress on making that decision,” Molitor said.

In his last start on Monday against the Phillies, Pelfrey allowed one earned run on seven hits and two walks, while striking out two in 4 2/3 innings.

Overall this spring Pelfrey has allowed two earned runs in 13 2/3 innings for a 1.32 ERA.

Twins SP Mike Pelfrey appears to be fading in SP competition
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey made his second straight start and fourth appearance this spring Monday against the Phillies. Pelfrey, who is vying for a spot in the rotation, allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits and two walks, while striking out two in 4 2/3 innings during a 3-0 loss.

Pelfrey (0-2) gave up six singles and a two-run homer to Cody Asche. He has a 1.32 ERA through 13 2/3 innings.

“I’m at peace,” Pelfrey said of his spring performance, per the Pioneer Press. “I feel good. I’m healthy. I just want to pitch.”

While Pelfrey's numbers look good, it doesn't appear he has done enough to win the final spot in the rotation. It appears Tommy Milone and Trevor May remain the favorites to win the job.

“He battled. I have to give him that,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “I don’t think his command was great. Threw a lot of split-fingers today, which he’s gaining confidence in. Some looked very effective and there were a couple that were kind of noncompetitive. It’s a work in progress.

“We’ll determine what (Pelfrey is) going to do next here in the short term. May’s pitched well. Milone’s pitched fairly well. And we know Mike’s done a a good job of coming back. It will be challenging, but I like my options.”
