Johan Santana said he felt good after throwing in the outfield at Wrigley Field on Saturday and expects to throw off the mound tomorrow.
After his mound session, Santana will decide if he'll make his next start, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News tweets .
Santana said he was pain-free after Saturday's session. He left Thursday's game with a pectoral strain. (Is it just me or does that headshot look like a senior portrait?)
"Everything is good," Santana told ESPNNewYork.com's Adam Rubin . "Playing catch I don't feel anything. So we'll see how it feels tomorrow."
Santana is listed as the starter for the Mets on Tuesday against the Nationals.
"The day after I pitch I take everything easy. Especially if it's a day game, I don't play catch," Santana said. "And today I just played a little bit of catch. And then tomorrow, that's when I will throw my bullpen and see how it feels. It was today or tomorrow. We decided to throw a bullpen tomorrow."
