Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey allowed five earned runs, six hits and two walks with just one strikeout over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday, July 26, against the Boston Red Sox.
Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey has been slightly better lately, but he is still nothing more than a fantasy option in the deepest of NL-only formats and as a salary saver in DFS.

Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey (2-8) allowed one run on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 8, with three walks and two strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Despite Friday's quality start, Pelfrey has recorded just one victory in his last seven outings. He should continue to be viewed as a low-end starting pitching option for AL-only fantasy leagues and is not a recommended choice for DFS.

Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey tossed 4 1/3 scoreless innings in relief of SP Jordan Zimmermann versus the Cleveland Indians Friday, June 24, with three hits allowed and two strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey recently had his next scheduled start pushed back from Saturday, June 25, to Tuesday, June 28, so that he could work on his mechanics. However, Friday's outing means he will probably be pushed back a second time. The 32-year-old right-hander was pressed into service because the Detroit bullpen was shorthanded. He is 1-7 with a 5.36 ERA through 15 appearances in 2016 and should not be owned outside of deep AL-only fantasy leagues.

Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris will start against the Seattle Mariners Thursday, June 23, SP Anibal Sanchez will start against the Cleveland Indians Saturday, June 25, and SP Mike Pelfrey will start against the Miami Marlins Tuesday, June 28.
Fantasy Tip: There is minimal fantasy value for all three hurlers, and none are anything more than potential streamers in seasonal leagues or low-priced fliers in daily contests. Norris has the most appeal in the long term, but his 3.84 ERA and 6.5 K/9 through 14 career starts hardly jumps off the page.

Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey allowed four earned runs, seven hits and two walks with just one strikeout over six innings in a loss Wednesday, June 15, against the Chicago White Sox.
Fantasy Tip: Pelfrey picked up an unlikely win against the White Sox and 11-game winner Chris Sale last time these teams faced each other June 4, but he struggled in the rematch. With a 4.79 ERA and 1.70 WHIP, Pelfrey isn't really helping anyone in fantasy. He should only be on rosters in the deepest of AL-only leagues at this point.
