07/06/06 Posted: 10:21 AM PST
News: According to several NY papers, the Mets have promoted thier top pitching prospet Mike Pelfrey to the majors. Pelfrey will either start Friday or Saturday against the Flordia Marlins. In 12 starts at AA-Binghamton, Pelfrey is 4-2 with a 2.71 ERA and 77 strikeouts.
Views: With Pedro Martinez suffering from an injured hip and likely to go on the DL for a week or so, the Mets find themselves a spot in the rotation that needs filling. Pelfrey is the most obvious candidate after a poor recent performance by Alay Soler. Pelfrey throws a 94-97 mph fastball, an above average slider, and a decent curve and changeup. He has been recently working on his secondary pitches in AA and scouts say they have drastically improved over the last month. If everything goes well, Pelfrey could soon find himself as a permanent member of the Mets rotation.
