Blue Jays reliever Bo Schultz scheduled for elbow surgery

Arash Madani and Mike Wilner discuss the news that Bo Schultz has left the Toronto Blue Jays to see a specialist about his elbow.

DUNEDIN, Fla. – Toronto Blue Jays reliever Bo Schultz is scheduled for surgery on his right elbow Wednesday, with the scope of the procedure to be determined as it happens.

Manager John Gibbons revealed the news Tuesday after the 31-year-old visited a specialist in New York.

"He’s got a couple of (bone) chips in there and they’ll look at the ligament while they’re in there," said Gibbons.

The extent of the damage to his ligament is unclear but doctors still "want to take a look at it."

Schultz posted a 5.51 earned-run average and 1.224 WHIP in 16.1 innings over 16 games for the Blue Jays last year, a season in which he returned from hip surgery.
