Irish or not, the Mets’ eyes were smiling after Johan Santana’s outing back in St. Lucie this morning against Mets’ minor leaguers. During the intrasquad game, the staff ace worked four innings, surrendering six hits and a pair of runs, while whiffing five on 56 pitches, 40 strikes.
In other pitching news, Bobby Parnell topped out at 96 mph on the in-stadium gun (a rare luxury at Spring Training sites) while working a perfect frame after Jonathan Niese threw the first four innings.
