Phil Miller: Pelfrey pitched poorly, but felt good
Phil Miller gives some notes from today's 8-5 win. Pitcher Mike Pelfrey was chased before his two innings were complete, but felt good about most of the outing.
Pelfrey used all four of his pitches, he said, and kept everything close to the strike zone. He allowed five hits and three runs but didn't walk a batter. His fastball was mostly 86-88 mph but should gradually increase to the mid-90s by the beginning of the season, he said.

After reading the article, I really like Pelfrey's humble but confident attitude. It seems to me that if he can shake off the rust and throw in the mid-90's, he can be a solid starter. He might also be a good mentor for some of the younger pitchers.

It was his first start since TJ surgery. Not going to except miracles. His next few starts will be the true test.I bent my wookie...
