St. Petersburg, FL – Toronto Blue Jays pitchers Drew Hutchison and Dustin McGowan are both scheduled to undergo surgery on Thursday.
Hutchison, 21, posted a 5-3 record with a 4.60 earned run average in 11 starts before being removed from a June 15 game against Philadelphia with elbow soreness after throwing just nine pitches.
The Florida native will have Tommy John surgery performed by Dr. James Andrews. Approximate recovery time is one year.
McGowan, who is yet to appear in a game for the Blue Jays this season, will visit Andrews on Wednesday before undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery on Thursday.
The 30-year-old previously had shoulder surgeries performed in 2008 and 2010, limiting the right-hander to just four starts since July 8, 2008.
