Mets' Santana not concerned about 2011

NEW YORK -- A week ago, Johan Santana was pitching in a minor-league game. This week, he's not throwing at all.

And the Mets still say they felt good about the results of the latest exam on Santana's left shoulder.

You want to know how hard it is to come back from anterior capsule surgery? That's how hard it is.

A setback like this, even if it means that Santana won't return to the big leagues this year, can't be seen as a big problem.

"If I pitch this season, that'll be great," Santana said Friday. "If I don't, as long as I feel healthy, that's what I'm looking for."

Santana said doctors told him that the fatigue they saw in his shoulder wasn't a huge concern.

"The doctors said it was too much, too soon," he said, explaining that he had tried to throw long toss the day after pitching three innings for Class A Port St. Lucie.

Santana could resume throwing sometime next week, but it's too early for the Mets to even think about when he would be ready for another minor-league game. The Mets say that it's still not impossible that he'll pitch in the big leagues before the end of the season, but they also admit that even a September start wouldn't give them much information about what to expect from him next year.

"I don't think we'll be able to make any definitive judgments on Johan by the end of the season," general manager Sandy Alderson said.

That's the way it is with this surgery, one that has proved particularly hard for pitchers to return from. Chien-Ming Wang and Mark Prior had similar surgeries, and neither has won a big-league game since.

Interesting that Knobler would cite those two players as reasons to avoid the surgery. Without it he cannot lift his arm. There are several players who came back from a "tired arm" and actually came back stronger.
