“Suave, amigos. Everything is under control.”
Those were the words of New York Mets starting pitcher Johana Santana Tuesday after throwing for the second time this spring off the mound. Santana has shoulder surgery in September of 2010, causing him to miss the entire 2011 season as a result.
“In my mind right now, in my heart, he’ll be ready,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “I don’t think there’s any question. This guy has worked so hard in the last 18 months to get ready, I think he’s going to be ready, I really do.”
