Johan Santana to throw next on Sunday

Johan Santana will throw his next bullpen session on Sunday, according to SNY’s Matt Dunn.

Santana threw 32 pitches today after throwing 29 pitches yesterday. According to Dunn, Santana said he felt “really good,” as he again threw all of his pitches and was able to increase the intensity in his final six pitches.

While he has had positive progress so far, Santana said he is still building up his strength and still has a long way to go.

Santana also said he is pleased with where he is physically right now; he’s┬áhad consistency in each of his bullpen sessions; and he his finding his release point right now, but is doing things like he does during the regular season.

Earlier this afternoon, Terry Collins told reporters Santana would throw again on Saturday.
