Johan Santana of New York Mets to Have Shoulder Surgery

New York Mets ace left-hander Johan Santana needs surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule of his throwing shoulder.

Here is the statement released by the Mets.

"An MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan yesterday revealed that Mets pitcher Johan Santana has suffered a tear of the anterior capsule of the left shoulder. The injury is located on the front and bottom part of the shoulder close to the pectoral muscle, resulting in discomfort radiating through both the pectoral muscle and shoulder. Santana will undergo surgery in the near future and we anticipate he will be able to resume throwing in the spring."

Yikes! Do the Mets ever get any good news?
