There appears to remain a long road ahead for the left-hander Johan Santana, who has not pitched in a spring training game and will not join his teammates for the start of the regular season next month.

Santana, who felt weakness in his shoulder upon arriving to camp, has been limited to playing catch on flat ground at a distance of 90 feet. That distance will need to grow considerably before he can consider getting back on a mound for a bullpen session, something he has not done since March 6.

“I’m just building up my strength and throwing more volume,” he said. “And then, after that, hopefully I’ll be able to start getting on a mound soon.”

Manager Terry Collins said Friday that Santana would stay back at the team’s spring training complex when the Mets return to New York for their season opener on April 1. The team has not made any official announcements about placing him on the disabled list.

The original hope at the start of camp was that Santana would be the team’s opening day starter. Santana, 34, has one more year on his Mets contract. He will make $25.5 million this year, and the Mets have a $5.5 million buyout for his 2014 team option year.

Santana reiterated that there was no specific issue with his shoulder — one that was surgically repaired in 2010 — besides a general lack of strength.

He would not speculate on when he would be back on the mound.

“We can’t think ahead,” he said. “The way we’re approaching everything is, every day make sure we have a good day.”

Each letter of the first and middle names rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the day of birth and the fourth, fifth, and sixth letters of the name.

13 (born on the 13th of the month) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) = 29

So the numbers 13 (born on the 13th of the month), 16 (sum of the fourth, fifth, and sixth letters of the name), and 29 (13+16=29) rule his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

June 2, 2012

For more than 50 years, the New York Mets chased that elusive no-hitter. Johan Santana finally finished the job.

Santana pitched the first no-hitter in team history, helped by an umpire’s missed call and an outstanding catch in left field in an 8-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

After a string of close calls over the last five decades, Santana went all the way in the Mets’ 8,020th game.

“Finally, the first one,” he said. “That is the greatest feeling ever.”

He needed a couple of key assists to pull it off.

Carlos Beltran, back at Citi Field for the first time since the Mets traded him last July, hit a line drive over third base in the sixth inning that hit the foul line and should have been called fair. But third base umpire Adrian Johnson ruled it foul and the no-hitter was intact — even though a replay clearly showed a mark where the ball landed on the chalk line.

“I saw the ball hitting outside the line, just foul,” Johnson told a pool reporter.

The umpire acknowledged that he saw the replay afterward but declined to comment.

“It was in front of his face, and he called it foul. I thought it was a fair ball,” Beltran said. “At the end of the day, one hit wasn’t going to make a difference in the ballgame. We needed to score more runs and we didn’t do that.”

Hometown kid Mike Baxter then made a tremendous catch in left field to rob Yadier Molina of extra bases in the seventh. Baxter crashed into the wall, injured his shoulder and left the game.

Making his 11th start since missing last season following shoulder surgery, Santana (3-2) threw a career-high 134 pitches in his second consecutive shutout. Relying on a sneaky fastball and the baffling changeup that’s always been his signature, he struck out eight and walked five with wind gusting up to 30 mph.

“Amazing,” Santana said after tossing the majors’ third no-hitter this year. “Coming into this season I was just hoping to come back and stay healthy and help this team, and now I am in this situation in the greatest city for baseball.”

Before the game, Mets manager Terry Collins said he planned to limit Santana to 110-115 pitches all season.

“I just couldn’t take him out,” a choked-up Collins said afterward.

Born in 1962, the Mets have been built on pitching when they’ve fielded their best teams. But neither Nolan Ryan, Tom Seaver nor Dwight Gooden could throw a no-hitter for the Mets — though all three are among the seven pitchers who tossed one after leaving the team.

Philip Humber is another one. He pitched a perfect game for the Chicago White Sox at Seattle on April 21, and Jered Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels no-hit Minnesota on May 2.

Following the game, Santana addressed his teammates in the clubhouse. He thanked them and said: “Yeah, baby! Believe it!”

“I’m really happy for them,” said Boston manager Bobby Valentine, who managed the Mets from 1996-2002. “That’s been an albatross over the pitching in that franchise forever, since ’62. One of the best pitchers they’ve ever had threw it and that also gives credibility to it.”

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez congratulated Santana in a message on Twitter, calling him a “golden left-hander” and “Giant Johan.”

“What pride! Long live Venezuela!” Chavez said in the message.
