From New York’s WFAN comes word that Mets left-hander Johan Santana was lifted from his Thursday start against the Braves due to a strained pectoral muscle.
Santana threw only 65 pitches and lasted only five innings. He was great while on the rubber, allowing just three hits and one earned run while racking up three strikeouts, but he apparently injured himself while throwing a pitch and could be in danger of missing his next start.
The Mets, for now, are calling him “day-to-day,” but that status could change when Santana is reevaluated on Friday morning.
He has a 10-9 record, a 2.98 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP over 29 starts this season and has been one of the few bright spots for the fourth-place Metropolitans.
