Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press also reported that the Twins have a two-year, $10 million offer on the table.
Pelfrey, who turns 30 next month, was one of the team's top starters in 2013, in a much-maligned starting rotation. His agent is Scott Boras.
In his first season following May 2012 Tommy John surgery, Pelfrey went 5-13 in 152 2/3 innings. He struck out 5.95 batters per nine innings and walked 3.12. His average fastball velocity was 92.4 mph, the same as his career velocity across 1,049 innings in the Majors.
