Phillies reliever

"Pedro Mart¡nez was my idol because of his great talent and his dedication to this game. He has done a lot in this game. He is a great Dominican to emulate.

"It was great to have him as a teammate in 2009. He taught me a lot about the game: how to respect the game and how to do things right so that you can continue to grow in this game."
