Johan Santana will undergo minor surgery on his left elbow and should be ready by spring training, reports Brad Como of SNY.
Santana will have minor arthroscopic surgery to clean up bone chips in his elbow.
This should be viewed as good news for Mets fans, as it is not Tommy John surgery and he is expected to be ready for spring training 2010.
This will likely be a very similar surgery to J.J. Putz’s earlier this season. Putz was said to be out for 10-12 weeks.
