Pedro Martinez will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in July, but the retired ace just found another gig. Martinez has been hired to be an analyst by the MLB Network. Martinez should be a good fit as he seems very comfortable in camera. And after seeing former teammate Kevin Millar become an analyst, it peed Martinez’s interest.
The iconic former Red Sox ace, who will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in July, has reached an agreement to join the MLB Network as an analyst.
Despite being a relative novice — he also filled in on occasional NESN Red Sox telecasts — the charismatic Martinez was a near-instant hit for his candor and humor.
He also does not shy away from criticism when it’s warranted, something recently retired players sometime struggle with in the transition to television.
