    Santana learning limits in post-injury reality

    JUPITER, Fla. -- A reality check came in the first inning Monday for Johan Santana, as well as for all those invested in his surgically repaired left shoulder. It came in the form of a bases-loaded jam, with Santana not only unable to throw his fastballs for strikes, but also unable to deliver them with anything more than mid-80s zip.

    Then, as quickly as it had crescendoed, the ominous music ceased. Santana struck out a batter, allowed a sacrifice fly and struck out another. He whiffed two more in the second inning, adding velocity all the while. By the time Santana was done, he had thrown five innings of two-run ball, whiffing five and walking three, with all three free passes coming in the first.




    Looks like things are improving for him fast though. I was just throwing that out there cause he's LH and I've always liked him. I do think DD has the go ahead to make a deal if needed. Doesn't mean anything happens during spring though. I believe if they do go after a starter it will be another top of the rotation kind of guy. Porcello still has stuff to prove and Max needs to rebound. I think DD would feel much more comfortable going into the playoffs with 3 top notch starters in Verlander, Fister, and whoever they traded for. Max really needs to be that 3rd guy and step up this season.

    You do realize that Santana is owed $55m over the next 2 years, don't you?
