A rival executive told Heyman that the "best thing for him might be to get out of New York."
Pelfrey, 28, has allowed 20 hits and 16 runs in 9 2/3 innings with more walks (six) than strikeouts (four) this spring, though the team doesn't appear to be considering releasing him.
The Boras client will earn $5.675MM this season, though the Mets would only have to pay him a portion of his salary if they release him before Opening Day.
Since becoming a full-time starter in 2008, Pelfrey has pitched to a 4.27 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 while throwing at least 180 innings in each season. He is under team control as an arbitration-eligible player in 2013 before qualifying for free agency.
DD: Right Now he is the only pitcher who has not showed anything positive towards the 2012 Season, if the Mets can get something back in return worth anything, I would have to say goodbye to Mr.Pelf ~
