News: Santana has a Schedule

The Mets have created a tentative schedule for Johan Santana, who will pitch a side session tomorrow and Sunday, followed by live batting practice or another side session on March 10.

from what i can gather, he’ll continue to throw around 35 pitches in the two side sessions, then push it a tad in batting practice… after that, he can expect to pitch one or two innings in a live game

basically, the way it looks to me, santana will need to maintain this exact schedule and get in to a real game by the end of next week, otherwise he’ll run the risk of missing Opening Day…
