Pelfrey Open To Extension With Mets

Mets pitcher Mike Pelfrey is open to a contract extension with the club, writes Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.  The righthander will be under Mets control until 2014 but would like to remain in Queens for even longer.

"I would be interested," the 26-year-old said about the possibility of a contract extension. "They'd have to bring it up, but I'm sure we'll explore it. I'm definitely open to it."

Despite Pelfrey's interest, the Mets have not approached Pelfrey about an extension.  The hurler will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.  While Pelfrey seems to like the idea of signing a long-term deal which would buy out his remaining arbitration years and beyond, his agent Scott Boras probably feels differently.

Pelfrey's four-year, $5.25MM contract with New York expired prior to this season.  The righty is making just $500K for the 2010 season, his best to date.  Pelfrey has registered a 3.75 ERA with 5.1 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 31 starts.
