Another step for Pedro Martinez. He threw 31 pitches today in his first mound session in the rehabbing his surgically-repaired shoulder.
Martinez warmed up by long-tossing at 120 feet, then threw 15 pitches, took a short break and threw 16 more.
“Everything felt good,’’ Martinez told a Mets spokesperson. Of course, you’d expect him to say that. The real outcome of today will be tomorrow. It’s always after a throw day that tells most everything.
Prediction: Omar will say something along the lines of: “It’s too early to have a timetable.’’
