TORONTO -- Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Josh Johnson underwent successful arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to remove loose bodies and a bone spur in his right elbow.

The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews, the Blue Jays said in a release. Johnson is expected to be ready for spring training next year.

The 29-year-old native of Minneapolis, Minn., had a 2-8 record and 6.20 earned-run average over 16 appearances this year. He allowed 105 hits and 15 home runs over 81 1/3 innings pitched.

Johnson earned $13.75 million this past season with the Blue Jays, who acquired him last year in a blockbuster trade with the Miami Marlins.

The club has yet to confirm whether it intends to extend Johnson a qualifying offer.

Johnson made his big-league debut with the Marlins in 2005 and has a career record of 58-45 with a 3.40 ERA.
