SARASOTA, Fla. -- Johan Santana will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a torn anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder.

Team doctor David Altchek, who performed Santana's Sept. 2, 2010 anterior capsule procedure, will operate again on the southpaw.

Santana took 19 months to throw a major league pitch after the first surgery.

"The one thing everybody kind of forgot about is the competitiveness in this guy," Terry Collins said. "He's not done. I'm sure that's why he's doing it."
