Sadly, Johan Santana may never recover from his latest shoulder surgery.  According to George A. King III of the New York Post, any semblance of his 90+ MPH fastball stuff of his prime has been lost on the 34-year-old lefty: Tim Naehring represented the Yankees at the workout in which Santana topped out at 81 mph, pitched between 77 and 78 mph and mixed in an impressive changeup...

HOW MUCH IS SANTANA CAUSE OF HIS OWN PROBLEMS? When Johan Santana said he doesn’t know when he will pitch again, it isn’t inconceivable it could be never.
