Johan Santana Way Ahead Of Schedule
According to several reports, Mets ace Johan Santana said yesterday, that he is “way ahead” of schedule as he continues to rehab his surgically repaired left shoulder.
The New York Post reported that Santana threw the ball 110 times Monday on flat ground at the Mets spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, and that his throws were “crisp and accurate”.
Santana continues to make great progress and his left shoulder remains pain free.
The next step is now to begin throwing from a mound and that could happen as early as next week.
“I’m looking forward to that,” Santana told the Post. “I feel great. Obviously, I am not in the position where I can compete right now, but I’m right where I should be. As the medical staff has said, I’m way ahead of everything. I’m very pleased and happy with how everything is right now.”
Still, no date has been mentioned as far as a return, but during Spring Training Alderson did say that Santana could return in late June or early July barring any setbacks.
It’s great to hear that Johan believes he’s way ahead of schedule, and I wonder if that translates into a return the rotation next month? I hope so.
