Player Update: Pedro Martinez

Mark Hale at the New York Post, writes about Pedro Martinez and his next stage of rehab:

Four days from now, Pedro Martinez is scheduled to throw off a mound for the first time this season.

Martinez, who's recovering from a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, is scheduled for his initial bullpen session on Tuesday. He also will long toss that day.

Martinez said he has been long tossing up to 230 feet. But a successful mound session would be a big step forward in his rehabilitation.

Martinez is still set to return to the Mets in August.
