TORONTO -- First baseman Edwin Encarnacion of the Toronto Blue Jays underwent successful surgery Thursday to clean up cartilage in his left wrist.

The all-star slugger had the procedure done in Cleveland, manager John Gibbons said in a pre-game availability before Toronto played the New York Yankees at Rogers Centre.

Encarnacion, who went on the disabled list earlier this week, had 36 homers, 104 RBIs and a .272 batting average this season.

He's expected to need about two months of recovery time before he can swing a bat again.

The procedure is not expected to affect any other off-season training.

Gibbons didn't have an update on all-star reliever Brett Cecil, who was recently added to the 15-day DL with a sore elbow.

Cecil is scheduled to have an MRI exam later this week.

The left-hander has a 5-1 record this season with a 2.82 earned-run average and one save.
