Spring Training: Pelfrey pleased with outing


The arms are loosening up.

For the first time this spring, Twins pitchers threw live batting practice to hitters today in Fort Myers.

Reports from Florida say starter Mike Pelfrey looked especially good.

He’s coming off Tommy John surgery last May and tells MLB.com that he felt great and there’s no doubt he’ll be ready on Opening Day.

In his words: "I forgot how much fun that was."

"He's pretty good at what he does," manager Ron Gardenhire told the Pioneer Press. "He knows not to overdo it."

Pelfrey, who signed a one-year deal for $4 million, is expected to face hitters again on Wednesday.
