Pedro’s First Start Cut Short

Pedro Martinez’s first minor league rehab appearance was cut short due to inclement weather.  Martinez pitched 1.1 innings for the Clearwater Threshers.  A downpour halted play against the St. Lucie Mets.

After a half hour rain delay to start the game, Martinez hit a batter and allowed a hit in a 20 pitch first inning.  He struck out a batter and threw 14 of 24 pitches for strikes.  He hit about 87-91 on the radar gun.  He had very good command and his changeup remains impressive.

The Phillies asked Martinez to finish his pitches, so he threw about 50 pitches in a simulated game afterwards.

The Threshers led 2-0 before the game was called.
