Mike Pelfrey?

Postby tuff_gong » Mon Aug 28, 2006 11:12 am

Can you guys give me some info about this guy...I just acquired him as a throw-in in a deadline deal. I knew he was a good pitching prospect, but what more can you tell me about him?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

He throws with his tongue hanging out - more than Michael Jordan - so the Mets made him get a mouthpiece. The mouthpiece is solid blue, but has ample room for some kind of endosement, or just a Mets logo.

I like Pelfrey, but I'm not as high on him as most people. I don't think his numbers are that impressive for a 22-year-old in AA (1.30 WHIP, .244 BAA). He has only pitched in the minors for one year, though, so who knows if he will come through with some adjustments in 2007.

He's on my third tier of prospects right now; second tier for most people.

Pelfrey is nice, he just needs to get control of his pitches and not tip off his slider. As a throw-in, that is great.
