UPDATE (8:20PM ET): MOTHER NATURE KEEPS SANTANA IN FLORIDA

Johan Santana had originally planned on flying to New York for an exam scheduled for Monday on his sore left elbow. Bad weather in the northeast would have caused travel problems for Santana. Instead of going to see the doctors in New York, the doctors will come see him. The Mets and Santana will wait until the doctors come to Port St. Lucie.

In reality, Santana would have still battled the weather to New York if his bullpen session on Monday had not gone so well. He threw his scheduled bullpen session on Sunday, and said he felt fine during and after the 31 pitches. This made him and the Mets decide there was no need to fight the weather in the northeast. Even though the soreness in the elbow proved to be not serious, as the Mets have reported all along, it has still delayed Santana’s progress enough where he will most likely miss his first start on opening day.

 

What many had already assumed would take place has now officially been scheduled for Monday. The New York Mets have decided to send pitching ace Johan Santana back to New York for an exam on his sore left elbow. He will receive an MRI to make sure their is nothing structurally wrong that is causing the soreness and tightness in his elbow.

Ease of mind is the reason for the exam according to General Manager Omar Minaya. MLB.com is still reporting that the tightness in Santana’s elbow is not considered serious at this time, but it is setting him back enough where it will most likely cause him to miss his opening day start.
