Mets not active with Pelfrey, but open
By Adam Rubin
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Mets need to bring in two starting pitchers, including a fifth-starter type that has a low base salary.
So what about a reunion with Mike Pelfrey, who was popular in the Mets clubhouse with teammates during his first stint with the club?
Well, a team official did not rule it out, but offered no indication anything was active on that front now.
"I know he is on a long list of guys just like him," a team insider told ESPNNewYork.com.
Pelfrey was non-tendered by the Mets after earning $5.7 million in 2012.
He went 5-13 with a 5.19 ERA in 29 starts for the Minnesota Twins this past season.
Re-signing Daisuke Matsuzaka would appear another alternative for that role.
