Mike Pelfrey returns to face Mets


Former Met and first round draft pick of the 2005 MLB Draft, Mike Pelfrey will return to Tradition Field this Monday to face the Mets in his second spring start of the season. Pelfrey signed a 2-year, $16 million dollar deal this offseason with the Tigers. Pelfrey has not faced the Mets since he was not retained after the 2011 season. Pelfrey will have another chance when the games matter to face his former team, when the Mets make a trip to Detroit August 5-7.
