Don't Mess with the Johan: Santana will get the ball opening day

The Mets announced Sunday that Johan Santana will start Opening Day at Citi Field, 19 months and three days after last pitching in the big leagues.

"It means that everything that we have done since I had my surgery, all the way to today, has been paid off," Santana said. "We worked hard and I'm very happy."

Santana's April 5 assignment will come just under 19 months removed from surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder. A rare, though increasingly common operation for pitchers, shoulder capsule surgery has at best derailed careers and at worst ended them. Knowing that, Santana mostly avoided talk of Opening Day throughout the first six weeks of Spring Training. Even Collins, his manager, recently expressed surprise that Santana had made it through the bulk of camp without a single setback.

Johan Santana labeled as a "Question Mark" and might not be ready for opening day

According to ESPN NY's Adam Rubin,  Mets general manager Sandy Alderson labeled Johan Santana as a "question mark" and said he "might not be" ready for Opening Day.

Santana didn't throw a pitch in the majors this season after undergoing surgery on his left shoulder last September.

The Mets may have to go trolling for starting pitching behind Jon Niese, R.A. Dickey, Mike Pelfrey and Dillon Gee, because it's a fool's errand to count on Santana's health at this point.

"If we stick someone in, who's the logical person to go down? We don't really have a logical candidate to go down," Alderson said. "But we do have some question marks, of course, with Santana being one of them. We think he's going to be ready, but he might not be. That's where the depth becomes important."

Alderson mentioned Jeremy Hefner, claimed off waivers, as a pitcher who could potentially fill in.
