Johan Santana will pitch two innings Tuesday against Cardinals

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY,  Johan Santana is good to go for Tuesday's home split-squad game against the St. Louis Cardinals, Terry Collins said Monday afternoon.

Santana is scheduled to pitch two innings and no more than 35 pitches, according to pitching coach Dan Warthen.

"I'm really excited to see him out there," Collins said. "Obviously two days after tomorrow is when I want to really see how he's doing, because that will be a test on how he's going to bounce back. I just said to him the other day, 'Look, all I want you to do is approach this like you've been approaching your side [bullpen session]s.' He's going to have his adrenaline flowing and we've got to realize that. And I certainly will. But he's smart enough to know that it's all a process."

As for Santana facing the Cardinals, Collins added: "I don't care about the results. All I want him to do is come back in two days, throw a side and be ready for his next start. If we've got that, we're going to be fine."

Ex Met F-Mart Goes Deep in Astros Debut

Fernando Martinez's debut with the Astros couldn't have gone any better.

Martinez, an outfielder who was claimed off waivers from the Mets in January, made his first Grapefruit League start for the Astros on Sunday against the Nationals and went 2-for-2 with a three-run homer and a walk as the team's designated hitter.

"I need the opportunity to play a couple of games and maybe they want to see me and how I play in the outfield and how I run the bases," said Martinez, a former top prospect of the Mets whose career has been marred by injury. "I'm working hard every day. It's simple. It's like anything -- just enjoy the game and play hard."

The Astros also got homers on Sunday from catcher Chris Snyder, who belted a solo shot off Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg, and left fielder J.D. Martinez, who went 1-for-2 with a three-run blast and a bases-loaded walk en route to four RBIs in his first start of the season.

"I was just trying to see pitches and came up in that spot and was trying to hit the ball," J.D. Martinez said. "[Pitcher Tom Gorzelanny] was just trying to come in and he left it in the middle instead of coming in, and I was able to get to it."

Turner, Bay and Duda lead their intrasquad team into victory

Josh Stinson, Armando Rodriguez and Jon Rauch combined for five scoreless innings in relief of Chris Schwinden as Team Blue beat Team Orange, 4-1, in Saturday’s intrasquad game.

Justin Turner, Jason Bay and Lucas Duda had two hits apiece for the victors, while Ike Davis and Josh Thole each matched that output for the losing side. R.A. Dickey allowed two hits and two walks while striking out three in two scoreless innings. Pedro Beato and D.J. Carrasco each were charged with two runs in two innings.

Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy were paired in the middle infield but not tested with a play that required any coordination.

Thole threw out Turner on the only steal attempt against him.

Terry Collins said he was particularly paying attention to Davis during his two times on base, since this was his first quasi-game action since suffering what turned out to be the season-ending left ankle injury last May 10 in Colorado.

Nieuwenhuis Homers in Friday's Opening Intrasquad game

Friday’s opening intrasquad game proved the to be a prospect showcase, with center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis delivering a two-run homer on a curveball from Daniel Herrera, third baseman Zach Lutz’s double setting up the victorious team’s other run and highly regarded pitching prospects Matt Harvey and Jeurys Familia getting in two innings apiece.

Nieuwenhuis’ two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth of the seven-inning game provided a 3-2 win after Frank Francisco notched the save.

Dillon Gee pitched two innings for the losing side and allowed one run, when he walked Nieuwenhuis, surrendered a double off the left-field wall to Lutz and then an RBI groundout by Valentino Pascucci with the infield playing back.
