Johan Santana tossed a baseball with rehab coordinator Randy Niemann late Wednesday morning inside the main stadium in Port St. Lucie. It marked the second of back-to-back days for that activity.

Santana, cognizant of media watching him, said aloud: "I feel like a million bucks right now."

Santana actually kept backing up to increase the distance, and Niemann would counter by stepping closer to the ace to shorten the distance slightly.

Santana purposely threw the last toss into the ground "for media purposes."
