PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Johan Santana should proceed with his first mound session since being shut down in August later today, and the Mets are eyeing his first Grapefruit League game for "the first couple of days of March," pitching coach Dan Warthen said.

The Mets play host to the Detroit Tigers on March 1 and Miami Marlins on March 2.

Santana last pitched in a game Aug. 17, when he officially was shut down with back inflammation.
