Johan Santana discusses his ankle injury, mechanics

After today’s 8-5 loss to the Dodgers, Johan Santana spoke with reporters about his ankle injury, and said he has felt discomfort while pitching but it was not a focus for him while he was pitching.

“A couple of times I felt it, but I don’t think about it,” Santana said.

Santana has realized he’s altered his mechanics due to the injury, but he tried not to let it impact him mentally while he was pitching.

Santana was placed on the 15-day disabled list today with a sprained ankle.
