JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Johan Santana knows he won't be pitching when the New York Mets start their season April 1. He doesn't know when he'll take the mound again.
The 33-year-old left-hander was scheduled to throw on flat ground from 90 feet Saturday, up from 60 feet a week ago. He'll need to get up to about 180 feet before the Mets allow his first bullpen session since Feb. 6.
He said Saturday that ``I'm making progress, I just don't know when I'm going to be pitching again.''
The two-time Cy Young Award winner will miss the entire exhibition season because of a lack of arm strength and will start the season on the disabled list.
