Mets to consider re-signing Martinez


The Mets are interested in retaining Pedro Martinez and plan to meet with the Dominican pitcher's agent, GM Omar Minaya informed ESPNdeportes.com.

"We have interest in him. We're going to talk to his agent when we have the opportunity," Minaya said Tuesday, the second day of the winter meetings.

Minaya said that he has not yet scheduled a formal meeting with Fernando Cuza, Martinez's agent, or Martinez.

Martinez, 37, endured the worst season of his 16-year career in 2008. He went 5-6 and 5.61 ERA in 20 outings and was affected by various injuries and personal problems.
