Pedro Martinez will get his 12th career playoff start on Saturday night. Charlie Manuel has named him the starter over J.A. Happ and Joe Blanton, according to MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki.
Pedro’s last postseason start was in ’04 with the Red Sox, when he pitched seven shutout innings in the World Series.
No statistics are available for his performance in the snow, however, which he may have to contend with Saturday night in Denver. Although he’s made it clear he’s ready for the elements.
