Mets Tap Ex-Yankee to Replace Pedro Martinez

Brandon Knight -- a 32-year-old ex-Yankee veteran -- has been called to Shea Stadium to take the place of starter Pedro Martinez, who remains on indefinite bereavement leave following the death of his father in the Dominican Republic.

Knight had a 5-1 record with a 1.60 ERA for the Triple A New Orleans Zephyrs.
