Johan Santana, who is expected to require surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder, is waiting for a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.
The Birmingham, Ala.-based surgeon is expected to review the MRI exam that had been conducted by team doctors on Thursday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. No visit to Birmingham, if required, or surgery date has yet been set.
"Nothing is planned as of yet," an official said. "Andrews is reviewing the MRI first and we'll go from there."
