Johan Santana may pitch again. Santana, who blew out his left shoulder on Friday, will miss the rest of the 2013 season and is currently deciding whether to pursue surgery or not, according to his agent. The 6-foot, 208-pound lefty did not play in the 2011 season after tearing the same anterior capsule. Whether Santana will undergo surgery remains to be seen, but the Mets ace has one goal in mind: to return to pitching as soon as possible. With regard to @johansantana, he is taking time this weekend w/his family contemplating whether or not to have surgery.
