Johan Santana's rehab will end this Saturday, October 8.
From now until Saturday, Santana will participate in long toss and a light game of catch before heading home for the winter to rest.
In a press release, general manager Sandy Alderson said, "Johan feels very good and is looking forward to 2012. We are optimistic that Johan will be able to begin and maintain a Spring Training schedule with all other Mets pitchers next February and will be ready for the start of the 2012 season."
In his last rehab start on September 30, Santana went four innings.
