Santana to have bone chips removed, out for season

Aug 25, 2009, 3:30 PM EDT

Johan Santana will miss the remainder of the season following elbow surgery, but believe it or not that news actually qualifies as relatively positive for the Mets. Santana will be going under the knife, but the procedure is merely to clean out bone chips in his elbow rather than replace any ligaments.
He’s expected to be fully healthy in time for spring training and bounced back well after previously having bone chips removed during his time in Minnesota. Santana clearly hasn’t been himself of late, managing just 60 strikeouts over his last 101 innings, yet still managed to post a 3.22 ERA since the All-Star break while pitching through pain. He has four years and $95.5 million remaining on his contract.

    Some people are like Slinkies … not really good for anything, but you can’t help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.
