Santana is 6-5 on the season with a 3.24 ERA over 17 games and 102.2 innings of work. Johan’s last outing was a rough one where he ultimately allowed 7 ER over 4.2 innings of work while having another play step on his calf while Santana was covering first base.

The Braves have the following numbers against Santana:
Diaz 18-35, 4 2B, HR
McCann 8-32, 2B, 3 HR
Chipper 7-27, HR
Prado 4-22, 2B

You didn’t go back in time today, Ben Sheets is actually pitching. Sheets will be making his first start since 201o when he went 4-9 over 20 starts and 119.1 innings with a 4.53 ERA for the Oakland Athletics. He made two starts in AA to prepare for 2012. In those two starts he pitched 10.1 innings and allowed 6 ER. In his career he has made 8 starts over 47.1 innings against the Mets with a 4-2 record and a 4.56 ERA. The Mets have the following numbers on Sheets:
