Mets' Wright says Santana injury 'disheartening'

David Wright sums up the mood of the New York Mets after learning Johan Santana is likely to miss his second season in three years because of a shoulder injury, saying it's "shocking" and "disheartening." 

The New York Mets captain spoke with Santana on Thursday night after the team announced the two-time Cy Young Award winner probably has re-torn the anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder. 

Wright said Friday that Santana is "just kind of in a bit of shock." 

Coming off four straight losing seasons, four consecutive years of declining home attendance and the offseason trade of R.A. Dickey to Toronto for prospects, the Mets don't appear to be very promising heading into Monday's opener against San Diego.
