For three seasons, Johan Santana has been with the Mets. Now he has three surgeries to match.
The Mets announced on Friday that Santana will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a tear of the anterior capsule of his left shoulder. His status for Opening Day 2011 is in doubt.
"The most important thing is to be ready," Santana said, "to be 100 percent whether it's April, whether it's May, July, October -- who knows? Time will tell how I will recover. I've just got to get back to being healthy."
