Mike Pelfrey Gets The Call And Will Start Friday Against The Phillies

It’s now official…

Mike Pelfrey will indeed start one of the games against the Philadelphia Phillies in Friday’s doubleheader. This move is borne more out of necessity rather than Pelfrey dominating hitters in the minors. He is currently 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA in New Orleans, and has given up 43 hits and 15 walks in 42 innings. Not exactly mind boggling.

During his first go-around with the Mets, he went 0-5 and sported a 6.53 ERA. Pelfrey is expected to go up against Cole Hamels.

Sounds like the 4th of July fireworks might get started a little bit early in Philadelphia…
