Johan Santana got back to the mound today and threw 25 pitches in Port St. Lucie. As you know, he’s rehabbing from a serious left shoulder surgery and missed all of 2011. He looks like he’s in good shape, as you’d expect from him, and it sounds like he’s encouraged about the bullpen session today with Josh Thole.
Personally, I’m hoping that he can pitch a solid half season this year. Anything more than that will be gravy.
Check out the video below when he spoke reporters after the bullpen session.
