Johan Santana Set For Spring Debut

"The moment Johan Santana delivers his first pitch today, Mets spring training will have a completely different feel from 2011.

A year ago, Santana was recovering from surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder, and the best-case scenario was the lefty would return in June. The Mets instead got the worst-case scenario, which meant Santana missed the entire season.

He now is set to take the mound against the Cardinals at Digital Domain Park, marking his first appearance against major league hitters since Sept. 2, 2010, when he left a game against the Braves at Turner Field with what the Mets originally termed a strained pectoral muscle."
