Johan Santana threw a career-high 134 pitches in his no-hitter Friday night and the Mets decided to push back his next turn in the rotation to allow for extra rest, so his follow-up performance will come Friday against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
Santana has given no indication that his surgically repaired shoulder feels worn out following the high workload, but considering he’s just 11 starts removed from missing an entire season and hadn’t thrown more than 108 pitches in any previous outing this year the added three days off makes sense.
He’s scheduled to face Phil Hughes, who’ll be coming off a complete-game victory over the Tigers yesterday.
