Pedro Martinez Injury Prone?

Sean StancillSenior Writer IApril 3, 2008

 

Pedro Martinez was put on the disabled list for four to six weeks after straining his hamstring on the 57th pick of his first start of the season. After last year's torn calf muscle, rotator cuff, the surgery that followed and the long time to heal, many Mets' fans were expecting a full year of dominance by Pedro this year.

 

But once again Martinez is hurt.

 

The New York Mets suffered maybe the biggest collapse in Baseball history when they squandered away the NL East to the Philadelphia Phillies and failed to make the playoffs. Supposedly one of the centerpieces of possibly the best rotation in baseball (with the acquiring of Johan Santana), Pedro has pitched one full year for the Mets which was in 2005, his first year after leaving the Boston Red Sox. He went 15-8 with a 2.82 ERA.

 

Pedro's latest setback is definitely a shattering blow for the Mets staff and the organization.
