SANTANA: Pitched BP today.

Johan Santana threw a 36-pitch bullpen session today and in on target to be ready for Opening Day.

Santana told reporters: “I pitched today with no problems in my elbow or my arm or anything, so I am fine, and at the same time I was working on my pitches and I was able to command it, so that’s what you want to see.

“For being my first time facing hitters, I think it was pretty good. Everything was there — breaking ball was there, my change up was there, my arm speed, my legs are there. That’s what you are looking for. You look for your legs to be there and to feel comfortable, and that’s how I felt.”

Barring a setback Santana could get in a minor league game this week.

  1. good news.

    if johan is not healthy this year we might as well bring all the young guys up mid season.

  2. Good thing he didn’t go to the WBC because he might have gotten hurt there.

  3. i love that. I had no pain today so i am fine. Those jedi mind tricks do wonders.
