Santana (elbow) played catch Monday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
Santana threw with teammate Chad Kuhl, who is recovering from a Tommy John surgery of his own. Santana will not return to game action this season, as the procedure (which he underwent in October) carries a recovery timeline of at least 12 months.
Santana (elbow) will be ready to resume throwing when spring training begins in February, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Santana underwent Tommy John surgery last September and is on track to miss all of 2019 while recovering from the procedure. The fact that he's close to throwing again suggests Santana has progressed as anticipated up to this point, but he still has several more hurdles to clear in his rehab.
