Well this season wasn’t the greatest season this team has had in recent years, it could have been a lot worse.
The fourth place Minnesota Twins have a lot of work that needs to be during this off-season and could be a busy team when the winter meetings roll around.
This team has a made a lot of roster moves during the season and could see a new group of guys next year since it was clear that this years roster wasn’t really working out.
They won’t finish in last place, but I’m sure it’s not easy knowing that the Kansas City Royals are 17 games ahead of them.
So speaking of roster moves, 29 year old right handed starting pitcher Michael (or Mike) Pelfrey is interested in returning to the Minnesota Twins next season. Pelfrey signed a one year deal with the Twins last season after coming back from Tommy John surgery. A move that truly isn’t a cake walk for anybody who has to undergo that surgery.
He’s posted a 5.19 ERA with a 101/53 K/BB ratio over 152 2/3 innings of work this season for the Twins. It’s possible he could be back in Minnesota, but I’m not sure if they’re going to want to give him another $4 million or more to bring him back.
Mike Pelfrey said this was his last start of the season. Said he’s expressed interest to management on returning with Twins next year.
