Johan Santana makes his second start today against the Dodgers. Also pitching will be Scott Schoeneweis, Joe Smith and Steve Register.
Register is a Rule 5 draftee who has caught the Mets’ eye. Joe Smith was a surprise story last year, but the odds are against him this spring.
More rehab work for all the injured players. Ryan Church and Luis Castillo hope to get on the field. Orlando Hernandez is scheduled to throw batting practice. However, with Hernandez, that’s written pencil.
