Santana In Port St. Lucie

Adam Rubin at The Daily News writes about Johan Santana and his first day at Mets Spring Training:

With pitching coach Rick Peterson, bullpen coach Guy Conti and trainer Ray Ramirez observing, a beaming Santana pitched from a 60-foot, six-inch distance on flat ground, with coach Randy Niemann serving as catcher.

Afterward, Peterson and Santana had a lengthy conversation - their first dialogue since Peterson was pitching coach with the A's.

"It was nice to have a visit and to find out what he likes. Johan's my teacher," Peterson said, alluding to how he will devise a workout schedule for Santana based on the ace's preferences.
