Pedro Hit Hard In Rehab Start

At they write about Pedro Martinez's first rehab start:

"Results don't matter right now," Martinez said after giving up five runs and six hits, including two home runs, in pitching three innings for Class A Port St. Lucie against the Lakeland Flying Tigers at Tradition Field.

Expected to throw about 80 pitches, he wound up lasting 63 -- 44 of them for strikes. Then he went into the bullpen area behind Tradition Field and threw until he reached 80 for the night.

"My arm and my body are recovering good," Martinez said. "Making adjustments is going to take me a little while because I haven't pitched in so long."
