Johan Throws Second Bullpen, Collins Expects Him To Be Ready Opening Day
Johan Santana threw another bullpen session this morning, his second of the spring, and he was happy with the way his 29 pitch effort went.
“I’ve been through a lot the last couple of years,” he said. “It’s exciting to be back on the field.”
On whether he would be ready for Opening Day, Santana said, “Hopefully toward the end of spring we’ll have a better idea if I can be there.”
His manager Terry Collins on the other hand, offered a much more optimistic outlook, ”In my mind, he’ll be ready.”
Collins also added that he’s hoping he’ll get 25 to 28 starts from Santana this season and that he plans on having him skipped a few times and working on an extra day of rest to keep him fresh.
