Yankees have checked in on Mike Pelfrey

Mike Pelfrey

The Yankees might be looking into the free agent market for pitching (although they have publicly stated that they’re not fans of the starting pitching in the market this offseason). According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Yankees have shown a slight interest in ex-Twin Mike PelfreyIf the Yankees signed Pelfrey, he would probably be a #4 starter with the fifth spot being an in organization competition.

With the Twins in 2013, Pelfrey had a 5.19 ERA in 152.2 innings. However, Pelfrey was coming off of Tommy John Surgery. Before the elbow surgery, Pelfrey had a 3.66 ERA in 204 innings for the New York Mets in 2010.

I’m pretty sure the Yankees are checking in as a back-up plan. If you’re any team, it never hurts just to ask around.

  2. Start looking into The Pitchers You drafted. Move Em up and lets see what happens. Geez!

    Sign Tanaka or Garza, but not this guy.

  4. Yanks need Tanaka AND Garza. So many "what ifs" and that includes Sabathia recovering from a very un-ace like season, Nova maturing and being consistent, and Kiroki Kuroda putting a whole season together. Finding a diamond in the rough like Aaron Small would be a godsend. It is December, and we can still dream.

    As far as Tanaka is concerned, going 24-0 is brilliant in any league. That said, he has not done it in MLB and the splitter is especially tough on the arm. Garza, figure 13 to 16 wins. Nothing ideal about any of this, but that is the market.
