Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Mets | Johan Santana expected to start on DL

New York Mets SP Johan Santana (shoulder) is unlikely to be ready to start the season on time, and SP Jeremy Hefner is being stretched out to fill Santana's void in the opening day rotation. "As you get older, you have to work more. There's no question about it. But you have to know yourself very well. That's what I do. I'm listening to my body the whole time. When you need time, you take time to make sure you move forward. You don't want a step back," Santana said.

Fantasy Tip: Santana is more risk than reward at this point of his career, and he's not worth anything more than a late-round flier in cavernous leagues. Hefner should only be considered in NL-only formats.
