Pedro Martinez received a cortisone injection this afternoon in his right hip and will miss Sunday’s start against the Cincinnati Reds.
Mets manager Jerry Manuel said Martinez would start Tuesday’s game at Shea Stadium against Philadelphia.
Martinez left Saturday’s start complaining of tightness in his shoulder, brought on he said because of a sore right groin.
Manuel also said there is no timetable for right fielder Ryan Church’s return.
And, we’re off and running.
