The team’s trainer, Ray Ramirez, occasionally stepped in to pull, tug and tweak Martinez’s special, super-terrific magic Nike sneaker…


…the buzz from the psl is that martinez did well and viewed today as a positive step…



Pedro Martinez - Starting Pitcher

Back after a one-day absence for personal reasons, Pedro Martinez threw 32 pitches today from a slope about a foot in front of the pitcher's mound.

"I couldn't really get on that leg that much, but now, it feels a lot better. So now, I'm probably 70 percent better than I was during the offseason." Feb. 25 - 5:33 pm et
