Johan Santana could miss time

New York Mets left-hander Johan Santana left Thursday's game with the Atlanta Braves after five innings with a strained pectoral muscle. Santana threw 65 pitches and allowed three hits and one run. It was good enough to lower his ERA to 2.98, but with the Mets not contending, this injury could cause him to miss his next start, or more.
Santana wasn't the only star player to leave his Thursday game early. Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera was hitless in three at-bats, two of them strikeouts, then was removed in the sixth inning due to left biceps tendinitis. Hopefully fantasy's No. 3 player doesn't miss any games, but be prepared for the possibility.
