Johan Santana Gets Back On A Mound
It was a sight for the sore eyes of Mets fans.
Johan Santana was on a mound, pitching in a competitive baseball game, albeit in a spring training game.
Santana threw 29 pitches (17 strikes) over two innings, allowing a hit, a walk and no runs against the St. Louis Cardinals in Grapefruit League action.
"God almighty, I don't know if we can have a bigger step forward today than that," said manager Terry Collins, according to Mets.com.
"The most important thing today was that I felt good," Santana said of his first action since September of 2010 when he tore an anterior capsule in his throwing shoulder.
