Martínez has the second highest winning percentage in modern baseball history, and the third highest strikeout rate and strikeout-to-walk ratio.
Martínez became a special assistant to Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington in 2013. He joined the TBS broadcasting team for that year's postseason coverage and later became an analyst for the MLB network.
In January 2015, Martínez was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. A few months later, he released a candid, controversial autobiography titled Pedro.
