Mets’ Santana has fatigue in shoulder

Mets pitcher Johan Santana has fatigue in his surgically
repaired left shoulder and will stop throwing until he regains his
strength.

The Mets say a hospital examination in New York on Thursday
revealed no other damage.

The two-time Cy Young winner had surgery on his shoulder last
September and has not pitched in the majors this season.

Santana pitched three scoreless innings last week for Class A
St. Lucie in his first rehabilitation outing. But he was scratched
from his next scheduled start because of lingering discomfort.

The Mets are home this weekend against Atlanta, and Santana will
stay with the major league team for a week and then go back to
Florida.
