07:47 AM ET 04.03 | Johan Santana underwent successful surgery Tuesday, but all is not well on the Mets pitching staff. Shaun Marcum could be headed toward an extended disabled list stint with the Mets, after neck pain Tuesday prevented him from throwing a simulated game in Port St. Lucie. The veteran right-hander is scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Marlins at Citi Field, but that plan almost certainly will change given Tuesday's setback. Marcum, who hasn't pitched in more than two weeks, will be reassessed today. But it appears likely lefty Aaron Laffey will be called up to start in Marcum's place. A team official Tuesday night said no decision has been reached on which direction the Mets will go for Sunday.
