Mets Santana Takes Spring Mound Tonight

All eyes will be on Johan Santana tonight, taking the mound for the first time in a game situation this spring. Apparently, the elbow tightness that troubled him earlier this month is no longer an issue. At least that’s what we’re hearing.

Santana has thrown a bullpen session and two batting practice sessions without ill effects. So the Mets are giving their most prized pitcher the “A-OK” to take the mound in a game.

The Mets play against the Marlins tonight in a rare 7:10pm start for a spring game. The game will be broadcast on SNY and MLB Network.

I only expect Santana to pitch two innings tonight. They’re not going to push him beyond his limts. All of the other pitchers started out throwing two innings in a game so I’d be shocked if the Mets pushed Santana beyond that.

Keep your fingers crossed that he makes it through a couple of innings with a pain-free elbow.
