Pedro Martinez is likely to rejoin the New York Mets' rotation early next week in San Francisco.
On the disabled list nearly all season with a strained left hamstring, Martinez is scheduled to make a minor league rehab start Wednesday night for Class-A St. Lucie. If all goes well, his next outing probably will come during New York's series June 2-4 against the Giants.
On Wednesday, Martinez is slated to face Tampa Bay's Vero Beach affiliate and left-hander David Price, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 amateur draft out of Vanderbilt.
The three-time Cy Young Award winner has been sidelined since straining his hamstring in his only start this season, April 1 at Florida.
