Johan Santana will miss his second rehab start in St. Lucie due to discomfort in his surgically repaired shoulder. Instead, he will fly to New York to see a doctor. In regard to when Santana could return to a Major League mound, general manager Sandy Alderson said:
"I don't really believe this is about this year. I believe it's about a timetable that will get him ready. If part of that timetable is pitching in the major leagues this year, good. If it's not, it's not. We certainly aren't going to rush things. Right now, I think a window in September is open to us. If it closes, that's the way it goes."Gary Carter, who is battling Grade-4 brain cancer, got some good news recently. According to his daughter, Kimmy Bloemers, Carter's tumors have shrunk by 80 percent.
