Mike Pelfrey Moving Up to Double-A

As reported by Marty Noble on Mets.com, first round pick Mike Pelfrey has been promoted to the Mets Double-A Binghamton franchise in a move that may be only a precursor of Pelfrey pitching in Shea Stadium later in the summer.

Noble quotes GM Omar Minaya that Pelfrey has responded to all challenges in St. Lucie, and needs to be pushed at a higher level:

... He hasn't struggled yet. You want him to do well. But you want him to be challenged and you want to see how he handles adversity. ... I said in Spring Training he'd probably need about a month down there [in Class A St. Lucie].

Double-A is the level that separates the prospects from the suspects. If Pelfrey can dominate the Eastern League, his ascension to the big leagues this season becomes a real possibility.
