-The reports are encouraging on “Pedro Martinez.”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=4875
He’ll go again Sunday, but where is not known yet. Bullpen coach Guy Conti said Martinez is fine physically, but isn’t satisfied with his change-up. It’s unlikely he will go from Single-A to the Mets.
-Jose Valentin showed up this afternoon. He’ll be re-examined on Aug. 30. If he’s given clearance he’ll try to come back this season. If not, he’ll opt for surgery. Valentin said he wants to play next year.
-There was no consideration given to sitting Delgado another day because of the wet turf.
