Mets doctor David Altchek cleared Santana to begin tossing a baseball on Jan. 14, but Santana's physical therapist in Fort Myers, Fla., preferred the ace first replicate throwing motions doing other excercises. So Santana has been using a "pitch-back"-type netting and throwing a weighted ball against it. He's also doing a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar-type skyhook motion and bouncing a ball off a wall.
Santana is not expected back before June or July.
