Peterson: Mets Should Be Very Concerned About Santana



By Mike Silva ~ June 15th, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized.

Brandon Tierney had former Mets pitching coach on his show today and reported this via his twitter

Former Mets-pitching coach Rick Peterson moments ago on “The Brandon Tierney Show:” The Mets should be “very concerned” with Johan Santana.

I didn’t have a chance to listen to this, but will download the podcast later today. Jon Heyman at his twitter added the following:

the more i think about it, the more worried i am about johan santana. what is this “earlier” soreness he was talking about?

Look for the podcast later today at the ESPN 1050 Website.

Update: Bart Hubbach reports that Peterson “has heard” that Santana’s surgically repaired knee is what could be the issue. Jon Heyman reported that a Mets higher up dismissed any concerns over Santana.

A very easy way to dismiss this report – go out and shut down the Rays next weekend.

    The Mets should be concerned. Actually, his arm speed has been in decline for a while, his last few starts on the Twins, his arm speed started to show. And since he joined the Mets, his interleague ERA is way higher than his National League ERA. The Mets should be concerned because if his arm speed is down and he cant seperate his change from his fastball considerable, than the good teams and AL teams will beat up on him.
