Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Neil Wagner will undergo Tommy John surgery next week to repair his right arm.
The surgery will be performed Aug. 19 by Dr. James Andrews, the team said Tuesday in a release.
Wagner, 30, is on the Jays' 40-man roster. The right-hander split time between Toronto and triple-A Buffalo this season prior to being placed on the disabled list.
The Minneapolis native had an 8.10 earned-run average in 10 appearances with the Blue Jays this season and had four saves and a 4.00 ERA in nine games with the Bisons.
Wagner has a 2-4 record and 4.92 ERA over 52 major-league appearances for the Blue Jays and Oakland Athletics.
