The suggestion I made yesterday about resting Johan Santana for the remainder of the season is on the table and will be discussed tomorrow. Good idea.
Neither Terry Collins nor GM Sandy Alderson have stated their preference, and the manager has Santana penciled in for Thursday.
However, pencils do come with erasers.
Reportedly, Santana will throw a bullpen session tomorrow, and is agreeable to being shut down if that’s management’s decision.
“What he is basically is saying is if that’s what we think we should do to make sure he’s healthy next year, he’s on board with it,” Collins said. “He understands the whole thought process behind it.”
