Player Update: Pedro Martinez

Jim Malony at, writes about Pedro Martinez and when he possibly could come back to the rotation:

Martinez, who underwent surgery on his right shoulder in October to repair a torn rotator cuff, still hasn't begun throwing off a mound, and the Mets can't say with any certainty when he will return. But Mets general manager Omar Minaya expressed hope on Tuesday for an August return by the right-hander.

"Things with Pedro are moving forward very nicely," Minaya told the Associated Press during a visit to the Dominican Republic. "We are hoping for his return in August, but the most important thing is that he recovers from his injury."
