Johan Santana underwent successful surgery Tuesday morning to repair a tear in the capsule in the front of his left shoulder.

Santana needed 19 months to make it back to the majors following his last shoulder surgery, so there's no telling when (or if) he'll pitch again. The Mets still owe him $31 million, including $25.5 million this season and a $5.5 million buyout on his option for 2014.
