Johan Santana's first bullpen session of the spring is tentatively scheduled for Sunday.

Santana really struggled after his no-hitter against the Cardinals last season, eventually being shut down due to a combination of fatigue and ankle and back injuries, but he has enjoyed a normal offseason up until this point. This is a big year for the 33-year-old southpaw, as he's entering the final guaranteed year of his six-year, $137.5 million contract. If he bounces back, it wouldn't be surprising to see him on the trade block.
