Johan Santana threw a 45-pitch bullpen session, ready to pitch rehab start

New York Mets left-hander Johan Santana threw a 45-pitch bullpen session at Sun Life Stadium before Sunday's game against the Florida Marlins and declared he is ready to pitch in a minor league rehab game if he awakes on Monday feeling similarly good.

"I think we actually started spring training a week ago, a week and a half ago, when we moved the bullpens closer together," said Mets rehab coordinator Randy Niemann, who monitored Santana's bullpen session along with the major league staff. "We started batting practice. That's what you would do in spring training. He's gotten to the point where, if he recovers, and he's feeling good, we can start getting into games, like you would in spring training."

"I felt good overall," Santana said about Sunday's session, which came two days after he threw a three-inning simulated game in Port St. Lucie, Fla. "I think all the work that we have been doing is paying off. The way I'm feeling right now, I'm getting closer."

Bay Returning Thursday

According to ESPN's Adam Rubin, Jason Bay met with Terry Collins, Sandy Alderson and Mets training coach Ray Ramirez on Monday. It was decided that Bay needs to play 2 more rehab games in Florida before being activated off of the DL. Bay would be in the lineup Thursday against the Houston Astros when they play the series finale at Citifield. Thursday will mark Bay's 2011 season debut and will hopefully help jump start a tired and slumpy Mets offense.

NY Post: Santana is throwing and playing catch

According to Dan Martin of the NY Post:

Johan Santana's return is still unknown, but he has finally begun playing catch, according to Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen.

"He's thrown a baseball three times now," Warthen said at the Mets spring training complex Friday. "We'll find out how he is and put together a program."

Warthen did not put a timetable on Santana's possible return from shoulder surgery, especially because it was a fairly intensive and unusual procedure.

"We have no history on that at all," Warthen said of the surgery and ensuing recovery. "We have enough video of Santana that if we think he's compensating in any way or form, we can go back and make sure he's doing things correctly for when he's ready to go out there and show his best velocity and use all his pitches without favoring anything."

The Mets hope that happens before the All-Star Break, but Warthen knows they have to be cautious.
