Pedro Martinez

I’ve gotten tons of e-mails about what is going on with Pedro Martinez and the short answer is: consider him done. He’s on the 15-day DL through the end of August. If he’s healthy by then expect the team to baby him back into the rotation with perhaps three starts in September. If he’s not healthy, there’s your answer.

From Rotowire:

Aug 17 Martinez (strained right calf) is eligible to come over the disabled list on August 30 and Manager Willie Randolph hopes to have his ace back by September 1 so that he can have four or five starts to get ready for the playoffs, the NY Daily News reports.
Recommendation: Martinez is slated to wear a protective boot for the next week, and he will initially be limited to playing catch and riding a stationary bike. September 1 is a best-case scenario for his return and the Mets will let Pedro take as much time as he needs to make sure he is fully healthy before allowing him to return to action.

So what do you all think? Is he done? I'm hesitant to drop him but with Huston Street hitting the DL on my team, I need to make room.

Yeah I think the Mets main goal here is to make sure he is in the best condition he can be in for the playoffs. The injury itself is not that serious so I don't really think a setback is much of a worry. From a fantasy baseball perspective it's definitely worrisome.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
