Yesterday, Mike Pelfrey put his revamped sinker to the test and the early results were very encouraging. The big right-hander tossed two hitless innings yesterday in an intrasquad game at Digital Domain Park. He struck out two and walked one over his two hitless innings and even shattered Valentino Pascucci’s bat with a sinker.
