NEW YORK (AP) -- Mets left-hander Johan Santana has had
arthroscopic surgery on torn cartilage in his left knee. Santana tore his meniscus before his final start but still pitched a shutout last Saturday on short rest against the Florida Marlins to temporarily keep the Mets' playoff hopes alive.
The team says in a release Wednesday that Santana is expected to
be ready for spring training. He went 16-7 with a 2.53 ERA after coming over from the Minnesota Twins in February in a blockbuster trade. The two-time AL Cy Young Award winner is in the first season of a $137.5 million, six-year contract.
