Johan Santana, who needs no introduction on this site as he threw the first no-hitter in New York Mets history, is attempting a comeback in the Venezuelan Winter League. Santana, who has missed two seasons due to injury since his June 1, 2012 Mets accomplishment, is throwing hard in his home country for the Navegantes del Magallanes, with some of his fastballs reaching near 90 mph.

The New York Post is reporting that the New York Yankees were in attendance for Tuesday’s game and may be interested.
