With Pedro, if it isn't one thing, it's another. He's always been like that. I can see if it was a reaggravated injury, but he has something new all the time.

PHILADELPHIA -- Pedro Martinez was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday by the New York Mets with a minor strain in his right calf.

The three-time Cy Young Award winner was examined in New York on Tuesday, one day after the injury forced him out of his start against the Philadelphia Phillies following the worst first inning of his career.

In his second season with the NL East-leading Mets, Martinez is 9-5 with a 3.84 ERA in 20 starts. He missed a month earlier this season because of inflammation in his right hip. He has 125 strikeouts and 35 walks in 122 innings.

Right-handed reliever Heath Bell was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to take Martinez's spot on the roster.

The Mets said Martinez felt the strain while warming up before Monday night's game. He gave up six runs and was pulled after only one inning.

It was his second-shortest start ever -- on June 20, 1995, he got only two outs for Montreal while giving up five runs to Houston. He had never allowed six runs in the first inning, the Elias Sports Bureau said.

From CBS Sportsline:

News: Pedro Martinez was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday with a minor strain in his right calf. The three-time Cy Young Award winner was examined in New York on Tuesday, one day after the injury forced him out of his start against the Phillies following the worst first inning of his career. Right-handed reliever Heath Bell was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to take Martinez's spot on the roster. The Mets' No. 5 starter replacement could be Brian Bannister off the DL and a Triple-A rehab assignment or Darren Oliver.

Analysis: In his second season with the NL East-leading Mets, Martinez is 9-5 with a 3.84 ERA in 20 starts. He missed a month earlier this season because of inflammation in his right hip and has 125 strikeouts and 35 walks in 122 innings. Consider him out until at least September at this point, but he should be fine for the final month, despite his recent DL stints. The Mets are being cautious with their most important starter for the postseason, but he will have to make regular starts in September to build up for October.

Is it too much to ask for Yahoo to list him on the DL so I can adjust my roster? I guess that's what you get for going cheap! Joe

What a surprise! Yahoo reports that he was placed on the 15 day DL with a strained calf, but they haven't placed him on the DL for the fantasy leagues.
