Report: Twins to sign RHP Mike Pelfrey

CBS Sports's Jon Heyman is reporting that the Twins have agreed to terms with RHP Mike Pelfrey. The 28-year-old pitcher made three starts in 2012 for the New York Mets before undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery. The deal is reportedly for one year at $4 million with incentives up to $1.5 million more. Most likely the Twins will announce such a deal following completion of a physical.

He is reported to be throwing well already, although it will be interesting to see how ready he is by spring training and by Opening Day.

Pelfrey was the Mets first-round pick in 2005 out of Wichita State. He debuts with the team in 2006. He has made 149 starts (and four relief appearances) for the Mets in his career. He has a 50-54 record with a 4.36 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. In the four seasons prior to 2012, he pitched no less than 184 innings and twice topped the 200 inning mark.


In his career, he has walked 3.2 batters per nine innings, but he has a career strikeout rate of just 5.1 per nine innings.

You may recall, the Twins wanted him to be part of the Johan Santana trade, but he was deemed untouchable. .

See... the Twins aren't against signing Scott Boras clients after all. I guess due to the fact that he's four years younger than Kevin Correia, this is a little bit better of a signing. What do you think?
