Description: Mets starter Johan Santana is having his 2013 debut pushed back until the week of March 10.
Insight: The Mets have previously announced that Santana will start Opening Day, but you always have to worry about his health and this isn't a good start. The lefty had a 6-4 record and 2.76 ERA after June last season but went 0-5 with a 15.63 ERA in his final five starts of the season before being shut down in late August due to a back injury. Like every season, fantasy owners should approach Santana with caution.

8/22/2012 4:49:00 PM
Description: The Mets have decided to shut down starter Johan Santana for the season due to lower back inflammation, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.
Insight: Santana was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday. An MRI revealed no structural damage but the team is well out of the race and doesn't need to risk Santana's health. The lefty lost his last five starts and saw his ERA increase from 2.76 to 4.85 in that span.
 
Cold8/21/2012 6:33:00 PM
Description: The Mets have not yet decided whether starter Johan Santana will be shut down for the season but they have ruled him out for his scheduled start Thursday, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com.

Description: Johan Santana endured a disastrous return to the Mets starting rotation on Saturday. In just an inning and a third of action, the veteran lefthander let in eight runs on eight hits as the Braves dominated New York 9-3.
Insight: Santana was supposed to throw 90 pitches on Saturday but he got the hook after just 43. He's now 0-4 with a brutal 22.09 ERA over his last four starts.
 
8/11/2012 3:50:00 PM
Description: New York officially activated lefthanded starting pitcher Johan Santana from the disabled list on Saturday. He had been out since mid-July with an injured shoulder.
Insight: Santana will start Saturday versus Atlanta, a team that he has struggled against in the past (3-8 record in 15 career starts against the Braves). Santana (6-7, 3.98 ERA) will be limited to just 90 pitches on Saturday, so don't expect him to last longer than six innings.
 
8/4/2012 5:54:00 PM
Description: According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Mets manager Terry Collins said starter Johan Santana is expected to rejoin the rotation next Saturday against the Braves.
Insight: Santana is out with a sprained right ankle after allowing 19 earned runs in his last three starts, all losses. The poor performance may have been related to shoulder fatigue, so perhaps a stint on the disabled list allowed Santana to rest up.
 
7/22/2012 4:00:00 PM
Description: Mets lefthander Johan Santana, who was moved to the disabled list Saturday after spraining his ankle, will also have his shoulder checked out as a precaution.
Insight: Santana's recent struggles (0-3, 13.50 ERA in his last three outings) could be linked to shoulder fatigue, which would almost definitely extend his stay on the DL.
 
7/21/2012 2:09:00 PM
Description: New York Mets starter Johan Santana has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right ankle.
Insight: Santana has a slightly above average won/loss record of 11-9 with a 3.98 ERA and 1.265 WHIP. R.A. Dickey is the Mets ace this year, but they need Santana to help eat innings and stay out of their vulnerable bullpen.
 
Hot6/30/2012 10:31:00 PM
Description: New York starter Johan Santana threw a gem for the Mets on Saturday. Santana held the Dodgers scoreless for eight innings while allowing just three hits and two walks. He struck out three.
Insight: Los Angeles never had a chance on Saturday as the Dodgers were shutout for the fifth time in their last six games. Santana, who began the month by throwing the first no-hitter in franchise history, is 2-1 with a 0.90 ERA in his last three starts.
