“Pedro Martinez”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=4875 will join the Mets Friday in Atlanta to throw a bullpen session.
General manager Omar Minaya said this is being done so manager Willie Randolph and pitching coach Rick Peterson can get another look at him.
Minaya said he couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t “see any set of circumstances,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ that would allow Martinez to pitch Saturday against the Braves.
“We want to be able to see him and find out where heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s at,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ Minaya said.
The Mets are looking at internal options for Saturday, with Mike Pelfrey having an inside track over Phil Humber.
