Pedro Martinez is hoping his career isn't over.
The right-hander, who owns 219 career wins, told the Boston Herald he expects to sign a major league contract during the season.
"I'm in good shape, real good -- it doesn't take me that long to get ready," the 38-year-old Martinez told the Herald. "Last year I wanted to come back and prove to myself that I was healthy. I didn't want to go down sore or with the excuse that my dad had died and I couldn't pitch. When I cleared my mind, I proved I could pitch."
