Blue Jays lose Santos for season

Blue Jays pitcher Sergio Santos will miss the rest of the season

with a shoulder injury.

The right-hander experienced pain during a throwing session

Saturday, and is scheduled to have surgery.

Blue Jays manager John Farrell says Sunday he hopes Santos will

be back by spring training.

Santos, acquired in an offseason trade with the Chicago White

Sox, has been on the disabled list since April 21. No date has been

set for his surgery, and the exact nature of his injury was not

disclosed.

Santos, 29, had recently begun throwing again at Toronto’s

spring facility in Dunedin, Fla. He was 0-1 with two saves and a

9.00 ERA in six relief appearances.
