Pedro Martinez is back, but the truth is he’s had two decent starts since his return and he’s coming off a lousy outing against the Yankees.
Martinez said he’s fine physically, but is mechanically off and might be tipping his pitches.
Truth is, the Mets let Martinez go at his own pace both in spring training and in his rehab. Mostly simulated games. Did he really get the work he needed? He says so, but what else do you expect him to say?
Martinez might be scintillating on any given night, but when that happens it is more a surprise.
