Johan Santana Update – Season Opener Doubtful

An article by posted on March 3, 2009

Pitching Coach Dan Warthen said earlier today to the New York Post that it is unlikely to expect ace Johan Santana to start Opening Day, April 6, against the Cincinnati Reds.

The more likely season debut for Santana would be Saturday, April 11 against the Florida Marlins. Santana will throw bullpen sessions on March 7 and 10 and throw batting practice on the 13th.

After a side-session on March 15th, he could make his first Spring start on March 18th against the Braves in Port St. Lucie.
