Pedro Jaime Martínez (born October 25, 1971 in Manoguayabo, Dominican Republic) is a free agent Major League Baseball pitcher. He is a three time Cy Young Award winner. At the time of his 200th win in April 2006, Martínez had the highest winning percentage of any 200-game winner in modern baseball history (he has since slipped .003 behind Whitey Ford). In 2007, Martínez became the 15th pitcher to reach 3,000 career strikeouts.
Martínez’s pitching style is atypical as he can rely on many “out” pitches. His fastball, cutter,curveball and circle change up are all well above average; combined with his historically excellent control, they prove to be an overpowering package. Martínez throws from a low three-quarter position that hides the ball very well from batters, who have remarked on the difficulty of picking up Martínez’s delivery.
