Pedro News

Ruben Amaro said that the Phillies would not know if Pedro Martinez passed his physical until Wednesday. Hours later, it was reported that Martinez passed his physical. Amaro declined to comment, however a press conference to introduce Martinez is expected tomorrow.

Amaro said that Martinez will need some time in the Minor Leagues before making an impact on the Major League roster. Amaro also said that adding Martinez would not stop the Phillies from pursuing Roy Halladay.

In All Star game news, Michael Young will start in place of Evan Longoria. Longoria has an infected finger. Chone Figgins will replace Longoria on the roster.

UPDATE (10:00 PM): Pedro signs a 1 year, $1 million contract plus $1.5 million in incentives.
