Pedro Martinez will make his first start of the spring this afternoon against Detroit. Martinez has been happy with how he’s thrown in two simulated games, but let’s face it, that’s not the real thing.
Martinez said it was important he returned for one month last year, mostly because it told him he could still pitch and eliminated a winter of wondering.
“It let me know where I was at,’’ Martinez said.
No line-up yet, but we’re expecting Carlos Beltran and Luis Castillo again today.
