FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Johan Santana will throw three innings or 45 pitches in a simulated game Monday.

Santana is building up his arm strength and obviously has a long way to go still. Both he and the Orioles are hoping to have him back sometime this summer, probably right after the All-Star break. Regardless, you don't want none of this when he returns...to the American League...to the AL East....with a home park built like a bandbox. Think of your ratios. ::shiver::ANALYST: Howard Bender
