NEW YORK (AP) - New York Mets reliever J.J. Putz has undergone surgery to remove a bone spur and fragments of bone from his right elbow.

The Mets said after Tuesday’s operation at the Hospital for Special Surgery that he is expected to start throwing in about six weeks. The team hopes Putz returns to games in 10 to 12 weeks.

Putz, acquired in the offseason from Seattle to be Francisco Rodriguez’s setup man, was put on the 15-day disabled list Friday after going 1-4 with a 5.22 ERA and two saves.
