Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Daniel Norris underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to remove bone spurs and loose bodies in his left elbow.

The procedure was performed by Dr. David Altchek in New York, the team said in a release. Norris, 21, will need at least six weeks of recovery time and is expected to be ready for spring training next year.

Norris started one game and made five appearances after being called up by the Blue Jays late in the season. He did not record a decision and allowed four runs over 6 2/3 innings.

Norris compiled a 12-2 record and a 2.53 earned-run average at three minor-league levels this year. He was 3-1 with a 3.18 ERA over five games at triple-A Buffalo.

Also Tuesday, the Blue Jays claimed right-hander Bo Schultz off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks. He spent most of last season at triple-A Reno of the Pacific Coast League.
