Santana returns to mound; all is well in Port St. Lucie (except for the weather)
It’s actually quite pleasant here today, with temperatures hovering in the low- to mid-50s. But plenty of players and reporters were griping about the cold in Port St. Lucie, where the Mets pushed their workout back two hours on account of the temperature.
When the Mets finally did don their uniforms, Johan Santana took the mound for his first bullpen session since last August. He threw approximately 20 pitches, (of which I managed to capture one on my new Instagram account), and expressed — what else? — optimism afterward.
Some additional photographs from Santana’s session are below:
