Mets will miss Pelfrey in Minnesota
By Adam Rubin
PHILADELPHIA -- A weekend reunion with Mike Pelfrey will not include facing the ex-Met.
Pelfrey, who is due to face the Kansas City Royals tonight, is not scheduled to pitch again until Monday, after the Mets have a weekend series at Target Field.
The pitching matchups:
Friday: Jonathon Niese vs. Vance Worley
Saturday: Matt Harvey vs. TBA
Sunday: Dillon Gee vs. Kevin Correia
Pelfrey signed with the Twins in late December for a $4 million base salary and the opportunity to earn another $1.5 million in incentives. In his Twins debut, Pelfrey picked up the win against Detroit. He allowed two runs (none earned) on five hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings while tossing 96 pitches.
Pelfrey underwent Tommy John surgery last May 1.
