Washington Nationals left-hander Sean Burnett underwent arthroscopic surgery Thursday to remove two small bone spurs from his elbow, reports Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. Sean Burnett underwent arthroscopic surgery Thursday two remove two small bone spurs. It shouldn't even interrupt his throwing program. — Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) October 19, 2012 Kilgore notes that the procedure won’t even disrupt the 30-year-old’s throwing routine. Burnett had been battling symptoms of the bone spurs over the entire second half of the season, as he indicated that he had been experiencing discomfort in his elbow since the All-Star break. If he decides not to exercise the player portion of his $3.5 million mutual option for 2013, which he is expected to do, Burnett will become a free agent this winter. While he says he’s interested in re-signing with the Nationals, his price tag will be hefty considering he’s a southpaw with a solid track record. Over 70 appearances for the Nationals this season Burnett maintained an ERA of 2.38 with 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings and 1.9 walks per nine innings.
