Pedro Martinez Continues Rehab

by @ 5:45 pm. Filed under 2006 Season, Minor Leagues, Pedro Martinez

Pedro Martinez took another step closer to getting on the mound.  He threw 32 pitches in from in front of the pitchers mound and while he didn’t throw at full speed, his delivery appeared normal.  There were a couple of times where the trainer had to make adjustments to his new shoe.

Regardless, getting Pedro Martinez on the mound is key to the Mets chances of winning a World Series this year.  We lost Jae Seo and Kris Benson to trades and those both thinned out our rotation.  The difference between Pedro and starter number six (which could be any of a few different people) right now is huge.  Huge. 

In other good news, Mets outfield prospect Lastings Milledge was chosen as the ninth best prospect in baseball by Baseball America.  We got to know Milledge better when he was blogging from the Arizona Fall League.  Milledge had an impressive .330/.402/.574 line in the AFL and he was just as good in AA (.337/.392/.487 in 193 at bats).
