Blue Jays pitching prospect John Stilson underwent surgery to repair the labrum in his right shoulder, Sportsnet.CA reports Friday. Stilson's season is over following the surgery, and his recovery time might stretch into early next season, as he is expected to need 6-8 months before he is fully healthy. Stilson has pitched well at Triple-A Buffalo this season, posting a 3.18 ERA in 34 innings, with 32 strikeouts and 18 walks.
