Free-agent pitcher Mike Pelfrey has agreed to sign a one-year, $4 million deal with the Minnesota Twins, ESPN.com's Adam Rubin reported Sunday. Rubin reported that Pelfrey can earn another $1.5 million in various incentives.

The 28-year-old Pelfrey made three starts with the New York Mets last season before undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. Despite a normal year-long recovery period from the surgery, Pelfrey has expressed optimism that he will be ready to return by spring training.

"Tim Hudson came back in seven months (from Tommy John surgery). Joba Chamberlain last year came back in eight before he broke his ankle. And I'll be about eight and a half or so. I'll definitely be ready when spring training rolls around," Pelfrey said recently, according to Rubin.
In his last full season in 2011, Pelfrey made 33 starts and went 7-13 with a 4.74 ERA. He is 50-54 with a 4.36 ERA in his career.
