‘It doesn’t look good’ for Pedro Martinez

Postby bigh0rt » Wed Apr 02, 2008 10:52 pm

Pedro Martinez returned to New York for a scan of his left hamstring, and the New York Mets prepared to be without the three-time Cy Young Award winner for an extended period.

“It doesn’t look good,” manager Willie Randolph said Wednesday, a day after Martinez was hurt while pitching against Florida in his first start of the season.

“He said he heard a pop, and that is not a good thing,” Randolph said. “Usually, when something like that happens, you are put on the DL right away, but we’ll just wait and see what the results are. It could have just been a combination of a real bad cramp or a strain. Any time a pitcher pulls a hamstring, that is usually automatic DL.”

Martinez allowed four runs in 3 1-3 innings during a 5-4, 10-inning defeat, limping off the mound after injuring himself during a pitch. He was to be examined by Dr. David Altchek at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
