Johan won't fly for second opinion on tear

|
NEW YORK -- Injured left-hander Johan Santana won't be flying anywhere to receive a second opinion on his torn left shoulder capsule.

Instead, the Mets simply plan on sending Santana's MRI results to noted orthopedist James Andrews, who will review the data remotely.

Either way, it is all but certain that the left-hander will undergo surgery in the very near future. Santana is seeking only to confirm the original diagnosis of the Mets' medical staff.
