In his two starts this season, Pelfrey has a 8.10 ERA, having allowed nine runs on 13 hits in ten innings, He has surrendered three home runs, walked six and struck out five.

…i can’t decide if i’m more relieved that there is a reason for pelfrey’s poor start, or nervous that this could be a significant injury… let’s hope he can take the time to get healthy early in the season if need be, instead of letting it explode into a long term issue…
