Unless I recall incorrectly he didn't pitch much at all last the spring. Solely off memory but I don't think I am wrong. Have no recollection of any mention of arm troubles, but I don't think he pitched much... In games at least.
**edit**. A quick google search, I found this in and MLB.com article from last April:
"Santos was limited to just five games in the Grapefruit League season this spring, as the club wanted to spend extra time working on his changeup and where he held his hands in the delivery."
Maybe that's all it was, but BJ Ryan had TJ surgery a few years ago resulting from a sore back in spring, lol

Santos could be hit or miss. It's a shoulder injury. As bad as it gets for a pitcher
its between a guy who had a near lights out year vs a guy coming off surgery and missing a year of action, come on
delabar and santos to set up....jannsen will close......at times santos and delabar will also close a few games
If Jansen starts pitching bad I hope they move him out of the closers spot fast instead of the whole CoCo thing they did last year.
Janssen's job to lose. Santos will be slowly brought along and might take over at the mid point if Janssen falters. Regardless the bullpen has a chance to be one of our best in years with our starters vastly improved. Our bullpen will not be taxed so much if our starters perform like whats expected of them. I just hope JJ and Morrow stay healthy and Romero bounces back. If that happens we have a chance to really put together a great season.
Toronto Blue Jays
San Francisco 49's
i'm sure AA is more concerned about winning the world series than winning the santos trade
Beeston: "we should be able to support a $140-$150 million payroll and that's the direction that we're headed."
I remember last spring the Jays saying they did not want to show Santos against certain teams which is why the low work load. In hindsight he was experiencing shoulder troubles
The Jays are strong at the back end and Jannsen will be our closer again. NO worries!!
i want santos to start just so they can play this song with his name swapped in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmE5yejBsfc
Blue Jays 2013 world champs, just watch
