MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins left-handed pitcher Johan Santana had successful surgery to remove a bone chip from his throwing elbow.
Santana will be unable to throw for about six weeks. The operation, considered minor, was performed Friday in the Twin Cities.

"He'll be OK," Twins general manager Terry Ryan said. "It won't be a very long recovery."

Santana was 12-3 with a 3.07 ERA, which included an 11-2 record as a starter with a 2.85 ERA. The 24-year-old didn't enter the rotation full time until July 11 of this season, but Minnesota already plans to have him be part of its 2004 rotation.

Ryan doesn't expect the operation to be a factor in Spring Training and will leave pitching Winter Ball in Venezuela up to Santana.

"I suspect he'll pitch some innings once he's 100 percent," Ryan said. "I don't have a problem with that."
