Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez has been added as a guest on Monday’s edition of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. It will be, no doubt, appointment television as Martinez has shown himself to be quite the personality, even after retiring from baseball.

Martinez offered post-game analysis during the playoffs last season for TBS and has appeared on MLB Network as well. Memorably, he criticized Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley for his takeout slide that broke Ruben Tejada’s leg during the NLCS last year. Martinez said, “That is something that is mind-boggling coming from a second baseman. It kind of bothers me to see that.”
