 NEW YORK (AP) -Pedro Martinez threw 65 pitches in batting practice Friday at the New York Mets' spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and could be ready for a minor league rehabilitation game next week.
``He felt fine,'' general manager Omar Minaya said. ``Everything went very well. The reports are very encouraging. The next step will be to see how he feels. It could be a simulated game or a rehab game.''
The three-time Cy Young Award winner had rotator cuff surgery last Oct. 5, and the Mets hope to have him back next month.
