Mets Saviour on the Way? [J. Mark English]

It could be as soon as next Monday that Pedro Martinez will give the Mets his first start of the season. D.J. Short of Mets Blog has more:

John Delcos of the Journal News has the low-down on a busy afternoon of activity with the orange and blue.

Pedro Martinez's bullpen session convinced the Mets that he may be able to make his season debut on Monday vs. the Reds.

...ironically, Cincinnati is where Martinez's first start as a Met took place...keep in mind that there is still a possibility that he could start for Single-A Brooklyn on Monday...stay tuned on that...

Martinez would essentially be replacing RHP Orlando Hernandez in the rotation, who was examined in New York and given a cortisone injection due to soreness to his right foot.
