Mets | Johan Santana undergoes surgery

New York Mets SP Johan Santana (shoulder) underwent left shoulder surgery Tuesday, April 2, for the second time in 31 months. The procedure was to fix a tear in the capsule in the front of his left shoulder, and he'll miss the entire season for the second time in the last three years. The Mets still owe Santana $31 million from his $137.5 million, six-year deal.

Fantasy Tip: This will be an extremely long and arduous rehab for Santana to come back a second time from the same injury. It's difficult for pitchers to come back from this procedure once, let alone twice. Don't expect him to be very productive if he does make it back at some point next season. Jeremy Hefner will now get a chance to prove he belongs in the team's starting rotation.
