Mike Pelfrey will be back next season for the Minnesota Twins.
The Twins agreed to a two-year, $11 million dollar deal with the 29-year-old righthander on Saturday, according to a report by CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman. The deal also holds an incentives package worth up to $3.5 million.
Pelfrey signed with the Twins last December on a one-year, $4 million contract, nearly eight months after undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. His initial Twins season was wrought with struggles, posting a 5-13 record and a 5.19 ERA in 29 games.
The re-signing of Pelfrey comes just a couple weeks after the Twins added Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes to their starting rotation.
The Twins have not officially announced the deal yet, with Pelfrey still needing to pass a physical.
