Johan Santana was supposed to make his first spring start by March 2, but today the team said that Santana is behind schedule in his throwing program. It is said to be a “conditioning issue” not a “structural” issue. Which means his arm is not hurt, it’s just not ready yet.

The team says that he would still be on schedule for Opening Day as long as he makes his first spring start my March 10, so at the moment this shouldn’t have a huge effect. Just something to watch.

    Oh come on baseball Gods. Let this man get healthy and pitch another season. I hate the Mutts, but Santana is one of my favorites. Give the man a chance.

    And tell him to go ahead and give up a hit in the first inning so we don’t have any drama

    He’s still hard at work “untipping” his pitches.
