Blurb from Flushing Futures prospect round-up:
2. Mike Pelfrey (RHP)- Once he signs, will be far and away the Mets' top pitching prospect. Was the top pitcher in the 2005 draft, falling to the Mets' at ninth overall due to signability concerns. Possesses an electric 92-97 mph fastball with heavy sink, a power breaking ball and a plus straight change. Should start in St. Lucie with a move up to Binghamton once the weather warms. Could see Shea before the close of the season.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
