The are several ramifications of Pedro Martinez starting Monday, beginning with Oliver Perez moved back a day and start Tuesday.
As for Wednesday’s starter, they’ll push back Orlando Hernandez and slot John Maine there, which would be normal rest. This move, coupled with the off day Thursday, gives more heal time for Hernandez.
Look for him in the Houston series. What day depends on Martinez.Ã‚Â The Mets say they’ll keep Martinez on a five-day rotation, but that’s hardly etched in stone. Five days would be Saturday, but they could push him back to Sunday. A lot will depend on Martinez’s outing.
