My first inclination is to think setback, but I have to back off because he is long-tossing. I would think if there’s pain, he wouldn’t be doing anything. By the way, in response to a poster who asked if Pedro had another injury, the Mets say no. The injury Omar Minaya was talking about is the original injury.
Maybe he’s having trouble getting loose and they are being cautious, which is the approach they’ve taken all along. I can’t say the Mets are putting a spin on this.
It doesn’t look as if Martinez will pitch in a rehab game by the end of the month, which I always thought was pretty ambitious in the first place.
If he doesn’t throw a simulated game by the end of next week, I would have to think twice.
