Phillies right-hander Jake Arrieta has bone spurs in his right elbow and will be checked during the All-Star break to see whether surgery is needed, manager Gabe Kapler said Sunday.

Kapler said the 33-year-old Arrieta recently told him about the trouble.

Earlier Sunday, a source had told ESPN's Buster Olney that the Phillies had been operating under the assumption that Arrieta could wait for surgery until after the season.
