Despite the weather, Pedro Martinez traveled to Lakewood, N.J. on Sunday for a bullpen session, working primarily from the stretch.

Martinez threw 35 of his 53 pitches from the stretch. He was coming off a rehab start for Triple A Lehigh Valley on Friday night when he struggled locating his pitches while throwing from the stretch.

“I struggled the last time only from the stretch,” Martinez said. “So we wanted to specifically to work on the pitches that I missed [locating] while being from the stretch.

“Like I said before I thought it was something that could be quickly corrected and I hope I can put it into place, really quick.”

After the session, Martinez said he feels "really good, excellent."

“I would like to pitch [for the Phillies] right now,” he said. “But it’s not up to me.”

He is expected to make another minor league start on Wednesday, likely for Double A Reading.
