Blue Jays reliever Bo Schultz undergoes Tommy John surgery

MLB insider Shi Davidi explains to Sportsnet’s Starting Lineup why he thinks Blue Jays critics are making too big of a deal with their concerns at first base and left field.

Toronto Blue Jays reliever Bo Schultz had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Wednesday.

“He’s got a couple of [bone] chips in there and they’ll look at the ligament while they’re in there,” manager John Gibbons said of Schultz Tuesday, before the full extent of his injury was known.

The 31-year-old 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.
