Johan's next rehab start to be Thursday
NEW YORK -- The Minor League season is still in progress for one Mets affiliate, meaning Johan Santana's rehab assignment is still in progress, as well.

Santana will make his next rehab start on Thursday for Class A Savannah, which has advanced to the South Atlantic League's championship series. Santana, who played a role in the Sand Gnats' recent success by throwing three effective innings in the semifinals, is scheduled to start Game 3 of their best-of-five series against Greensboro and throw a maximum of four innings.

Though it is all but certain that Santana will not return to the Mets this season, he could proceed either to instructional league or winter ball following the completion of the Minor League playoffs.

Now almost exactly one year removed from surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder, Santana played catch on Sunday from 90 feet, and plans to throw his routine between-starts bullpen session on Monday. As long as he feels no discomfort, he will then make his rehab start Thursday.

Santana, who will turn 33 in March, was 11-9 with a 2.98 ERA in 29 starts prior to his operation last September.
