Johan Santana Scratched, Dillon Gee To Start Tuesday

After today’s 18-5 win over the Cubs, Jerry Manuel told reporters Johan Santana has been scratched from Tuesday’s start against the Nationals, and Dillon Gee will start in his place.

Santana was removed after throwing just 65 pitches during start on Thursday against the Braves with a strained pectoral muscle, and threw a bullpen session today at Wrigley Field.
