News: Pelfrey gave up four runs over 4.1 innings with five walks and one strikeout, but got a no-decision in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader sweep over Toronto. Impact: Pelfrey has struggled so far this season as he's given up 13 runs over 14.2 innings with an ugly 7:12 K:BB ratio. Pelfrey's velocity at 91 mph per average fastball is lower than any point for his full season average in his career. It was thought he might improve in his second full season back from Tommy John surgery, but the early results suggest he's going the opposite direction.(RotoWire, )

News: Pelfrey will start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against Toronto after his scheduled start Wednesday was postponed due to inclement weather, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: He may face a different opposing pitcher as the Blue Jays may keep R.A. Dickey as the starter in the first game.(RotoWire, )

News: Pelfrey's Wednesday start against the Blue Jays has been postponed due to inclement weather. Impact: The two teams will make the game up as part of a day-night doubleheader Thursday. Pelfrey will more than likely receive the starting nod for one of those two games, though the Twins haven't confirmed which contest he'll start just yet.(RotoWire, )

News: Pelfrey was terrible again Thursday for the Twins. Impact: Pelfrey gave up six runs on nine hits and four walks in five innings. It won't get easier for him next as he faces the Jays.(STATS, 4:16pm)

News: Pelfrey (0-2) was lit up for nine hits, four walks and six runs (all earned) in five innings during Thursday's loss to the Twins. He struck out three. Impact: Two games into the year, Pelf's given up nine runs and 19 baserunners in 10.1 innings with more walks (seven) than strikeouts (six). All in all, it's about what fantasy owners have come to expect from the 30-year-old, who hasn't finished a full season with an ERA lower than 4.74 since 2010. There are precious few formats in which Pelfrey generates positive value.(RotoWire, )

News: Pelfrey was awful Friday for the Twins. Impact: Pelfrey yielded three runs in 5 1-3 innings in his first loss.(STATS, 7:07pm)

News: Pelfrey allowed three runs on three hits, walking three and striking out three over 5.1 innings of a 7-2 loss to Cleveland on Friday afternoon. Impact: The sinkerball specialist was on cruise control, allowing just one hit and no runs through the first five innings. But when sinkers stop sinking, they fly, and a pair of home runs in the sixth inning ended his outing abruptly. Now in his second season back from Tommy John surgery, Pelfrey is capable of better as the first few innings would suggest, but he's still a risky fantasy play.(RotoWire, )
