Profile: Grab the ball, lick, think, lick, rub the seams, lick, breathe deeply, lick, look around the infield, lick, sigh, lick, adjust the cap, lick. Twenty-five seconds later -- among the 10 slowest paces in the game -- Pelfrey will finally throw mostly either a decent sinker or an improving low-spin splitter toward the plate. It might be covered in spit, but it won't result in a strikeout, since he had the worst strikeout rate in the game (minimum 100 innings). It might end up in a walk, since he was worse than average there. Put them together, and you've got the worst strikeout-minus-walk rate in the game, and that's a quick and easy way to gauge talent, especially since his ground ball rate is more okay than elite (15th-best). He's 33 now, and there's no upside left in his pitches. So grab, lick, rub, lick, breathe, lick, and sigh. It's all there is to do at this point. (Eno Sarris)

The Quick Opinion: He'll bore you unless you count the licks, and there's little upside left, even now as he is finally throwing the split-finger more often. Even worse, he's probably a reliever next year once the Twins rotation is healthy, and he just doesn't get the whiffs to close or set up.
