I Am Legend

Johan Santana pitched the month of September with a torn meniscus in his left knee.  Santana was examined on Tuesday and had arthroscopic surgery yesterday at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Johan demanded to pitch the next to last game on Saturday despite having thrown a career high 125 pitches four days earlier.  Santana ended up pitching a complete game shutout in that final start and ended September with a 4-0 record and a 1.83 ERA.

He is expected to be completely recovered by Spring Training.
