Pedro Martinez underwent a MRI on his strained left hamstring this afternoon and is likely to be placed on the disabled list.
“Any time a pitcher pulls a hamstring it is almost always automatic,â€™â€™ manager Willie Randolph said.
Martinez was injured throwing a pitch to Floridaâ€™s Matt Treanor in the fourth inning of Tuesday nightâ€™s game. Randolph said Nelson Figueroa would be brought up and the plan is to keep Jorge Sosa in the bullpen. Tonight’s starter, Oliver Perez, would probably be brought up to start Opening Day at Shea next Tuesday.
