No news is good news on Pedro Martinez. He threw 88 pitches last night, which is a sign he’s getting stronger. He’s around 90 on the radar.
Bullpen coach Guy Conti says Martinez’s change-up is better than the pitcher thinks it is. “Pedro is being Pedro,” he said.
He’ll throw a bullpen Thursday, after which the Mets will decide the next step.
-Endy Chavez will be activated today. He will spot all three outfield positions.
-Willie Randolph said Brian Lawrence is still on for Saturday. I’d rather see Phil Humber because I know what Lawrence looks like.
