Blue Jays Injury Update: Daniel Norris undergoes arthroscopic elbow surgery

By on 10/07/2014 06:15:00 PM

Ben Nicholson-Smith is reporting that Toronto Blue Jays top pitching prospect Daniel Norris underwent arthroscopic elbow surgery.  The procedure reportedly removed bone spurs from his elbow.
As a September call-up, Norris may have been affected by this pain as he allowed two runs in three and a third innings in his first major league start.

The 21-year-old left hander had a solid minor league season.  Moving through three minor league levels, Norris had a combined 12-2 record with a 2.53 ERA.  This season he has clearly taken his game to a new level with each and every start he has made.   

Entering next season he has an outside shot at making the rotation out of camp.  With a solid farm system, Norris is at the top of the organization.  He has strikeout stuff and improving control.  These tools should be a mainstay at the top of the rotation for the foreseeable future.
