MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have agreed with right-hander Mike Pelfrey on a $4 million, one-year contract.
Pelfrey was an innings eater during a four-year run with the New York Mets before missing almost all of last season after Tommy John surgery. He went 50-54 with a 4.36 ERA in seven seasons in New York.
A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that the contract has $1.5 million in performances bonuses. The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.
Pelfrey will join Scott Diamond, Vance Worley and Kevin Correia in the rotation. Pelfrey has struck out 5.1 hitters per nine innings over his career.
