Colorado Rockies pitcher Josh Fogg underwent arthroscopic surgery Monday to remove bone spurs from his right elbow.

Fogg, 29, posted an 11-9 record with a 5.49 earned-run average and one complete-game shutout in 31 starts last season.

But the veteran right-hander often skipped throwing sessions between starts because of discomfort in the elbow.

Fogg is 50-51 lifetime with a 4.89 ERA, two complete games and one shutout in 167 games (150 starts) over six MLB seasons for the Chicago White Sox, Pittsburgh Pirates and Rockies.

Colorado has until Dec. 12 to make a contract offer to Fogg, who is eligible for arbitration.
