Mets manager Terry Collins acknowledged Santana is "not too close" to returning to a mound. He does not officially rule out breaking camp with the Mets, but the math almost assuredly dictates Santana will open the season on the disabled list, where he finished last season. After each of Santana's first four seasons as a Met, he was rehabbing from surgery during the offseason from a procedure to repair torn meniscus cartilage in a knee during the 2008-09 winter, an elbow cleanout the following year, then shoulder surgery for the next two winters. VIERA, Fla. Johan Santana broke his silence on Tuesday to proclaim harmony with the Mets, saying he is "on the same page" with the team as he continues to overcome his left shoulder weakness. The two-time Cy Young Award winner seemed to take offense when Alderson criticized his unpreparedness for Spring Training earlier this month, throwing a surprise bullpen session the next day and bristling when reporters asked about it.
