Picture of the day: Johan in happier days

Johan Santana will almost certainly be placed on the DL and is expected to miss the entirety of the 2013 season after a re-tear in the anterior capsule of his left shoulder was detected in an MRI.

Now 34, it is quite possible he has thrown his final pitch in the big leagues.
