Mike Pelfrey is allegedly signing a 2-year, $16 million deal with the Detroit Tigers.
I know you're saying to yourself, "Jesus, didn't the Twins have him for three years at $1 million less than that, total? Mike Pelfrey? That Mike Pelfrey? Wha?"
All of this is true. The one-pitch, non-bat-missing starter who was extremely well liked in the Twins clubhouse and not terribly beloved by fans has signed with the Tigers. Assuming that they need a back of the rotation guy like anyone else, I guess this makes some sense?
Anyway, the Twins will potentially get to face Mike Pelfrey a fair amount in 2016 and 2017. Unless he gets hurt like he did in 2014.
Mike Pelfrey is making $8 million a year. Good for him.
