Pitching great Pedro Martinez has a success story to share -- his own.

The three-time Cy Young Award winner has a book deal with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. The publisher announced Wednesday that "Pedro" will be published next year. It will be co-written by the Boston Herald's Michael Silverman.

Known for his slight physique and wide range of effective pitches, Martinez starred for the Montreal Expos, Boston Red Sox and Mets among other teams and won more than 200 games during an 18-year career in the major leagues that ended in 2009.

According to Houghton Mifflin, Martinez will tell "lively, raw stories" about the highs and lows of his time in baseball.
