Three-time Cy Young Award-winner Pedro Martinez has signed a book deal that will detail "lively, raw stories" about his life in baseball.

The Associated Press reported that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will publish “Pedro” next year. The book will be co-written by Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald. Details about the deal were not released.

Fans' reactions to the news was positive on Twitter.



Replied Pedro to one positive tweet.



Martinez, who works for the Red Sox as a special assistant to the general manager, has been in the booth calling some postseason games on TBS. He’s been getting generally positive reviews on Twitter for his broadcast work.








Martinez, who is all but guaranteed a place in baseball’s Hall of Fame, broke in with the Los Angeles Dodgers and went 10-5 with an ERA of 2.61 in his first full year, but was traded to Montreal for former All-Star second baseman Delino DeShields before the 1994 season when the Dodgers found themselves in need of a starting infielder. DeShields’ career sputtered just as Martinez’s was taking off. After winning the Cy Young Award with Montreal in 1997, he was traded to the Red Sox and helped Boston capture the World Series championship in 2004. He also played for the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies.

For 10 years, he was perhaps one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball. He retired after the 2009 season with a career record of 219 wins and 100 losses, an ERA of 2.93 and 3,154 strikeouts.
