(AP) Johan Santana is set for another shoulder surgery that he hopes will save his career.


The New York Mets say Saturday that their former ace will have surgery Tuesday to repair the re-torn anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder. The operation will be performed by Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek. The two-time Cy Young Award winner is likely to miss the entire season for the second time in three years.


Santana had surgery Sept. 14, 2010, and did not make it back to the major leagues until last April 5. The 34-year-old left-hander didn't pitch in any exhibition games this spring because of arm weakness, and he threw his last bullpen session in early March without the team's permission.
