Pedro Not Set To Return Until September

Marty Noble at Mets.com writes about Pedro Martinez:

Martinez's condition is unchanged, but now it seems likely he won't return to the big leagues until September unless his time pitching in baseball's rehab program is less than 30 days. Minaya said on Tuesday that Martinez will pitch at least one more time in simulated conditions before pitching in a Minor League game, and the simulated game hasn't been scheduled yet.

Martinez pitched three innings and threw 50 pitches in simulated conditions on Monday in Port St. Lucie, Fla., so his next step probably won't happen until Friday at the earliest. That means his first Minor League appearance probably won't happen until the first days of August.
