The procedure was done by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. Bush is expected to be ready by Spring Training.

Bush was bothered by the shoulder for much of season and had a pain-relieving injection on April 12. He did not go on the disabled list because of the shoulder but was sidelined from Aug. 21 to Sept. 9 with a sprained right knee.

Bush, in his second season, ended up pitching in 57 games and was 3-4 with a 3.78 ERA. He had 58 strikeouts in 52 1/3 innings, a 1.45 WHIP and 10 saves.
