Some Blue Jays news:

And the Jays just sent a press release tell us the same:

DANIEL NORRIS had arthroscopic surgery performed this morning to remove bone spurs and loose bodies in his left elbow. The procedure was performed by Dr. David Altchek in New York City.

Daniel did say, after his start for the Jays, that his stuff just wasn't there. This would explain why. His fastball was topping out at 95 MPH earlier in the year. During his start for the Jays, he was only getting to 91 at best.

It isn't unusual for pitchers to have this type of surgery at the end of a season. He should be fine by spring training.

Norris had a 2.53 ERA in 26 games, 25 start across 3 levels of the Jays minor league system. He had 163 strikeouts in 124.2 innings. He pitched 6.2 September innings for the Jays, allowing 5 hits, 4 earned, 5 walks with 4 strikeouts. He didn't look very impressive, but bone spurs will do that.
