Gavin Floyd (elbow) will not throw before October after having a checkup with Dr. David Altchek on Tuesday.
Coming back from surgery in June to repair a fractured olecranon in his right elbow, Floyd is expected to be fine for spring training. He'll be a free agent this winter. "He will increase his exercise program but won’t throw for six weeks," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "But (Braves head trainer Jeff Porter) seems to think it’s normal and doesn’t see any reason he can’t be ready to pitch in spring training, because it’s nothing to do with Tommy John, it’s just the bone."

Braves transferred RHP Gavin Floyd from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for the Braves' new additions. Floyd underwent season-ending surgery in June to repair a fractured olecranon in his right elbow.
Jul 31 - 5:40 PM

Gavin Floyd underwent season-ending surgery Wednesday to repair a fractured olecranon in right elbow.

The presumption is that the procedure would be season-ending, and the Braves have confirmed it. It's a really unfortunate blow for Floyd, who had been pitching well after returning from Tommy John surgery. He'll be a free agent this winter.

Gavin Floyd will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair the fractured olecranon bone in his right elbow.

The timetable will depend on how his bone heals, but he's not expected to pitch again this season. The Braves are calling up Alex Wood to take his spot in the starting rotation.

Gavin Floyd is likely to undergo season-ending surgery to repair a fracture of the olecranon in his right elbow.

The good news is that an MRI has confirmed he has no ligament damage. However, the surgery to repair the fracture is expected and a decision will be made official after Floyd sees a doctor in Atlanta on Monday or Tuesday. The right-hander will be a free agent this winter.

Braves placed RHP Gavin Floyd on the 15-day disabled list with a fracture of the olecranon in his right elbow.

Floyd suffered the fracture while throwing his last pitch of Thursday's start against the Nationals. The Braves have yet to offer a timetable for the right-hander's return, but there's certainly a good possibility that his season is over. Ryan Buchter has taken his spot on the roster, but Alex Wood will be up next week when Floyd's rotation spot comes up.

Gavin Floyd has been diagnosed with a fracture of the olecranon in his right elbow.

It's not clear how Floyd suffered the injury, but it's no surprise that the ailment is serious given how much swelling he had. The righty will be re-evaluated on Friday before the Braves determined how much time he might miss, but obviously he'll be placed on the disabled list. Alex Wood figures to replace him in the rotation next week.
Jun 19 - 10:23 PM

Gavin Floyd improved to 2-2 with six shutout innings in Thursday's win over the Nationals, but exited after taking the mound in the seventh inning with an elbow injury.

The injury is a scare for the Braves since Floyd was in the midst of his ninth start since returning from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander allowed only two hits and a walk while striking out six. Floyd owns an impressive 2.65 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 45/13 K/BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings. It seems unlikely he'll be able to take the mound for his next scheduled start against the Astros on the road.

Gavin Floyd left Thursday's start versus the Nationals with posterior swelling in his right elbow.

Floyd threw one pitch in the seventh inning before exiting with a noticeable knot on his pitching elbow. The best-case scenario is probably bursitis, but the Braves are obviously hoping the ligament isn't involved. Even if he gets good news, a trip to the disabled list would seem likely. Floyd was making his ninth start since recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Gavin Floyd left Thursday's start against the Nationals with an apparent elbow injury.

The Braves' trainer came out to check on Floyd after he threw his first pitch of the seventh inning. The righty was having his elbow looked at before walking off the field. Obviously, it's a bad sign given that Floyd was making his ninth start since returning from Tommy John surgery. He had spun six scoreless frames before exiting. We probably won't know much about his status until after the game.
Jun 19 - 9:06 PM

Gavin Floyd surrendered four earned runs in 6 1/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Angels.

Floyd earned his first win since undergoing Tommy John surgery Monday at Coors Field, but he didn't quite have it on Saturday night against the Angels. He yielded seven hits -- including homers to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols -- as Anaheim grabbed the extra-innings victory. Floyd will try to bounce back next week against the Nationals. He has a cool 2.98 ERA on the year.
Jun 15 - 12:06 AM

Gavin Floyd finally earned his first win since Tommy John surgery after pitching 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball against the Rockies at Coors Field on Monday.

Corey Dickerson's seventh-inning homer was the only damage. Floyd entered with a fine 2.80 ERA in six starts, but he had an 0-2 record anyway, even though the Braves were 3-3 in his outings. He's hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his seven starts. Since he also went winless in five starts prior to surgery last year, the win tonight was his first since Oct. 3, 2012.
Jun 10 - 1:49 AM

Gavin Floyd gave up 10 hits in his five innings of work Tuesday, allowing five runs -- three earned -- in a no-decision against the Mariners.

Floyd walked one while striking out four. He's made six starts since coming off the disabled list, and Tuesday's was the first in which he's allowed more than four runs. The right-hander has a 2.80 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 31/9 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings this year. He gets the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Sunday.
Jun 3 - 10:25 PM

Gavin Floyd continued to impress Friday, allowing two runs in 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rockies.

Floyd scattered seven hits while walking none and striking out seven. The only damage against him was an RBI ground out by Jordan Pacheco in the second inning and a solo homer by Michael Cuddyer in the sixth. The 31-year-old has a 2.49 ERA and 24/5 K/BB ratio in 25 1/3 innings since coming off the disabled list and should be on the mixed league radar.
May 24 - 12:02 AM

Gavin Floyd labored through 5 1/3 innings Sunday, allowing four runs -- one earned -- on seven hits and three walks before escaping with a no-decision in a 6-5 win over the Cardinals.

Peter Bourjos reached base after a strikeout with two outs in the second inning, which is why three of the runs were unearned. Still, Floyd was sloppy in this one, needing 95 pitches to record 16 outs. He has a deceiving 2.41 so far but will be a shaky fantasy option next week against the Rockies.
