WFAN is reporting that Johan Santana will have arthroscopic elbow surgery to remove bone chips in his arm. Santana’s season is over, much like the Mets.
Santana finishes the season at 13-9 with a 3.13 ERA and 1.212 WHIP for a team that is currently 57-68. Reports from the team are that Santana hasn’t been throwing between starts since the All-Star break. The last thing Mets fans had to cheer about is over. Santana went 8-3 at home and 5-6 on the road. He pitched 3 games against their biggest rival, the Phillies, and went 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA.
