Blue Jays claimed RHP David Herndon off waivers from the Phillies.

David Herndon underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Tuesday.

According to's Todd Zolecki, David Herndon "could be on his way toward Tommy John surgery."

Herndon has been out of commission since late April with a strained muscle in his pitching elbow. It's not getting any better through rest and rehab, and the right-hander may have no other choice but to go under the knife. Tommy John reconstructive surgery would keep him sidelined through most of the 2013 season.
