Johan Santana visited with the team in Miami today, and told reporters he will pitch in another rehab game this Friday either with Single-A St. Lucie or with Savanah in the South Atlantic League.
So, here are the first round playoff schedules:
St. Lucie- Game 1 - Tuesday - @ Bradenton - 7:00 pm
- Game 2 - Wednesday - vs. Bradenton - 6:30 pm
- Game 3 (if necessary) - Thursday - vs. Bradenton - 6:30 pm
Savannah- Game 1 - Wednesday - @ Augusta - 7:05 pm
- Game 2 - Friday - vs. Augusta - 7:05 pm
- Game 3 (if necessary) - Saturday - vs. Augusta - 6:05 pm
So, if the St. Lucie Mets advance, the Northern Division champs will get a nasty surprise in game one of the FSL Championship Series. And if the FSL Mets are eliminated quickly, the Gnats will have a two-time Cy Young Award winner starting game two with either a chance to advance to the SAL Championship Series or in an elimination game to force game three.
