Pedro Martinez had to leave the game against the Marlins with a hamstring injury tonight. No word yet on how severe or how long he'll be out. This could be really bad news for the Mets.

Pedro Injury May Lead To Acquisition

Pedro Martinez will have an MRI on his strained hamstring today, so the team should get an idea of how long their #2 starter will be out. We were already talking about the Mets possibily adding a starter before the injury; now the need is pressing.

MetsBlog's Matthew Cerrone suggests free agents Claudio Vargas or Woody Williams. Vargas is the most talented free agent pitcher; the group also includes Jeff Weaver and David Wells. Other random available starters I tossed out in my Kelvim Escobar post: Jason Marquis, Matt Morris, Matt Belisle, Jorge de la Rosa, Byung-Hyun Kim, Horacio Ramirez, Anthony Reyes, and Cliff Lee. The Mets aren't overflowing with trade chips, so signing Vargas makes the most sense.


Unlikely though.
