Johan Santana throws off mound, Twins in attendance
Johan Santana's job hunt took another step forward today as the former Cy Young winner threw off the mound with "a few teams" on hand to watch -- and the Twins being one of them says the Pioneer Press's Mike Berardino.
Santana tweeted out that the mound session had felt good along with an accompanying picture of him in the process:
There is sentiment around the game that it will be at least until mid-season before Santana will be either ready or signed by a team.
According to an NYPost.com article, Santana's workout did not go so great -- at least velocity-wise:
Tim Naehring represented the Yankees at the workout in which Santana topped out at 81 mph, pitched between 77 and 78 mph and mixed in an impressive changeup.
