Johan Santana balked at making a rehab start in the South Atlantic League championship series, so instead he threw a three-inning simulated game yesterday.
Santana faced instructional league players and afterward general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters that the left-hander’s surgically repaired shoulder “felt good.”
According to Alderson he struck out four and allowed one hit, and Santana also pitched well in his final rehab start last week.
Not making it back for at least a few appearances this season is no doubt disappointing to Santana and the Mets, but barring any further setbacks he should be fully healthy for spring training with two seasons and $55 million remaining on his contract.
