Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said Tuesday that the newly-signed Gavin Floyd has a spot in the rotation locked up.
It's not a surprise, but it's nice to have some clarity. Antonetti said that Floyd will join Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer in the rotation, leaving Danny Salazar, T.J. House, Zach McAllister and Josh Tomlin to battle for the final spot in spring training. Salazar has to be considered the favorite. Dec 16 - 8:28 PM

Indians signed RHP Gavin Floyd to a one-year, $4 million contract.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish says the deal includes $6 million in performance-based bonuses. Floyd was limited to nine starts in 2014 due to a fractured olecranon in his right elbow. He also underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in 2013. But the expectation is that Floyd will be fully healthy by the start of the 2015 season, and there's a chance he'll wind up being a nice addition for the Tribe.
Dec 16 - 4:16 PM

Gavin Floyd (elbow) is throwing at nearly full strength.

Floyd made only nine starts for the Braves in 2014 before suffering a fractured olecranon in his right elbow and he underwent Tommy John surgery in 2013, but the expectation is that he'll be 100 percent recovered heading into spring training next February. The free agent right-hander could be a nice bargain for some team this winter.
Nov 10 - 9:10 AM

Braves activated RHP Gavin Floyd from the 60-day disabled list.

Floyd pitched pretty well after returning from Tommy John surgery but unfortunately saw his season cut short due to surgery in June to repair a fractured olecranon in his right elbow. He'll be a free agent this offseason and is expected to be healthy for spring training.
Oct 31 - 9:15 AM

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."
Aug 27 - 9:34 AM

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.
Jun 26 - 6:52 PM

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.
Jun 24 - 12:59 PM

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.
Jun 22 - 9:05 AM

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.
Jun 20 - 1:22 PM

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.
Jun 19 - 10:12 PM

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.
Jun 19 - 9:34 PM

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.
