There Will Be Another Pedro Martinez in Pro Baseball

Pedro Martinez is one of the most popular players in recent times in the Major Leagues.  He was a Hall of Fame player and is still active in the game as a baseball analyst.

Now there will be another Pedro Martinez in the game, his son Pedro Jr.  The Detroit Tigers announced they have signed the younger Martinez, a Dominican prospect, during the international player signing period.

The 17-year-old is a third baseman, unlike his father and two uncles (Ramon and Jesus)who also pitched professionally.

The elder Martinez agreed with his son’s signing on the condition that the Tigers would allow Pedro Jr. to finish high school.

Three Martinez Brothers to be Inducted into Albuquerque Pro Hall of Fame

Pedro, Ramon, and Jesus Martinez all played for the minor-league Albuquerque Dukes during 1988 through 1997, when they were farm-hands in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.  They will be inducted into the Albuquerque Professional Baseball Hall of Fame at a minor-league game on April 8.

Pedro Martinez is the most well-known of the three brothers, as he was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015.  He won three Cy Young Awards during his 18-year career in which he won 219 games and posted a 2.93 ERA, including five seasons as league-leader in ERA.  He was a member of the 2004 Boston Red Sox World Series championship team.

Ramon Martinez won 135 career games during his 14-year career. His best season was in 1990 when he posted a 20-6 record that included 12 complete games for the Los Angeles Dodgers.  He finished second in the voting for the National League Cy Young Award that season.

Jesus Martinez didn’t reach the majors like his brothers, but spent ten seasons in the minors, reaching the Triple-A level for the Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds.

Pedro Martinez Followed in His Brother’s Footsteps

Recent Hall of Fame inductee Pedro Martinez owes much of his baseball career to his older brother Ramon Martinez.

Ramon preceded Pedro to the majors by four years, making his major league debut as a 20-year-old in 1988.  In 1990, Ramon was a 20-game winner for the Los Angeles Dodgers, finishing as runner-up for the Cy Young Award in the National League.  He posted six more seasons with double-digit wins for the Dodgers before finishing his career with a 135-88 won-lost record.

Pedro made his major league debut in 1992 with the Dodgers, where he pitched alongside his brother.  However, Pedro would go on to make his name in history by pitching for the Montreal Expos and Boston Red Sox earning three Cy Young Awards.  Pedro would be a teammate of his brother again with the Red Sox in 2000.
