Johan Santana is scheduled to throw off the mound Tuesday in Port St. Lucie where he will be attending the Mets’ three-day mini-camp.
“I’m feeling good. Time will tell, but I am feeling good,” he told The Associated Press on Monday. “We did a pretty good job with the offseason, working out and doing all the rehab, and I’m feeling good. Everything is on schedule.”
Santana had surgery at the end of last season to remove some bone chips from his pitching elbow.
Oliver Perez, who is recovering from scar tissue in his knee last season, also said he’s feeling good.
“Right now I don’t feel anything,” he said. “I think that’s why I’m really happy.”
If both Santana and Perez come back and stay healthy, that will make the Mets management very happy.
