Achy Pedro: "Not too good"

Pedro Martinez rode a stationary bicycle for about 40 minutes this morning, walked to his locker and rubbed his neck. “Not too good.,’ he said. “I feel it in the back (of the neck), it shoots to the right side." Martinez injured his neck swinging and missing in the second inning of Saturday’s loss, which he left after throwing one warm-up pitch before the fourth. “I didn’t sleep very well last night,” he said, grimacing while rubbing the afflicted area. Martinez said he expected to see a chiropractor in Miami, where the team travels tonight. Asked if he might miss his next start, he said, “Thank God for that day off (tomorrow),” which seemed to imply that four days of rest might be iffy but the extra day provided by the schedule might be sufficient. That start would come Friday in Milwaukee, and Martinez remained cagey when asked about his status for it. “I think it’s going to be great,” he said of Friday. “Day before Saturday!”
