Pelfrey loses despite not allowing an earned run

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Mike Pelfrey can point to a lot of good things that happened Sunday. He's not going to point a finger at Ian Kinsler though. Pelfrey (0-5) remained winless despite not allowing an earned run in the Detroit Tigers 4-2 setback to the Oakland Athletics in the series finale. A Kinsler fielding error, with two outs, set up Billy Butler's pinch hit, two-run single...

Game 49 Preview: Detroit Tigers at Oakland Athletics

Rich Hill and the still-winless Mike Pelfrey face off in the rubber match of the Tigers-A's series. It's getting hard to cheer for Mike Pelfrey these days. Yes, he plays for my favorite baseball team and seems like a great person as well, but his presence in the Tigers' rotation is actively making the team worse. They are 3-6 in games he has started this season, and are just now...

The Mike Pelfrey experiment is reaching critical mass

It's not us Mike. It's you. When the Tigers inked Mike Pelfrey to a two-year deal this offseason, a lot of people weren't thrilled. The Tigers saw reason to believe in Pelfrey's decent 2015 campaign. Unfortunately, it's really not working out well. The Tigers have plenty of reasons to try and make this work, but the starting rotation is the team's clear weakness in 2016. And the...

VIDEO: Mike Pelfrey gave umpire a fist bump after play at first

Mike Mulholland | Mike Pelfrey made a big pitch that got himself out of a jam Sunday and apparently thought first base umpire Mike DiMuro was congratulating him with a fist bump. Of course, DiMuro wasn’t.  Pelfrey’s juices were just flowing.  Hopefully this gets DiMuro and his buddies to expand the strike zone for Pelfrey so he can get his 5.68 ERA down near respectability...

Twins' Pelfrey plans to take game to another level in 2014

MINNEAPOLIS -- In his first season with the Minnesota Twins, right-hander Mike Pelfrey was given a corner locker in the clubhouse, a spot typically reserved for a veteran. While Pelfrey was indeed entering his eighth season last year, he was still a newcomer in Minnesota. Yet it didn't take long for the Twins' younger players to gravitate toward Pelfrey, who served as a mentor and...
