Twinsights: Mike Pelfrey “more than capable” of completing comeback, agent says

Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey has circled Sept. 3 for his first possible bullpen session following June 10 surgery to decompress a nerve in his throwing elbow. Could Pelfrey make it back to the mound by the end of the season? “Mike is a competitor,” agent Scott Boras said of his client. “I want to make sure he’s healthy and ready for next year. If he can do that and pitch this year, fine, but we have to take a look at that.” Boras was upbeat about Pelfrey’s chances of making a full recovery after what appears to be a lost first season of a two-year, $11 million contract......

But can the same be said of Mike Pelfrey? After giving the Twins 152.2 innings of 5.19 ERA baseball in 2013, a rotation that already had Kevin Correia,...

Twinsights: Mike Pelfrey shooting for Sept. 3 bullpen session

Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey, coming off June 10 surgery to relieve pressure on the ulnar nerve in his throwing elbow, hopes to resume playing catch by the end of the month. Tentatively, Sept. 3 has been targeted for Pelfrey’s first bullpen, but that would be thrown at 50-percent intensity, he said Wednesday. He might be able to take the mound for a relief appearance before the season ends, but he doubts he will make another start until 2015. “I don’t think I could build my pitch count up to 90 or 100,” he said. “That’s going to be stretching it.” Signed through next......
