Johan Santana will make rehab start Thursday


Johan Santana’s long-awaited clearance to begin a minor-league rehab assignment came today, with the Mets’ decision to allow him a 45-pitch debut.

That start will come Thursday for Single-A St. Lucie against Daytona Beach.

The Mets are hopeful it will lead to a return by their ace lefty at some point this season. Santana threw a bullpen session on Sunday in Miami, convincing team brass he was ready for this next step.
