|Braves contemplating rotation for near-future |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/19/14) Gavin Floyd or David Hale could be the odd man out when all shakes out for the sizzling Braves starting rotation, which boasts a major-league best 1.47 ERA this season.
The surprising start by Aaron Harang could result in Floyd not landing a starting spot when he completes his rehab from Tommy John surgery, MLB.com has speculated. Floyd gave up four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings in a rehab appearancce Friday for Double-A Mississippi. He will likely require at least two more rehab starts before he is ready to return.
Hale owns a 2.89 ERA in two starts for the Braves, but might be the most likely to be on the outside looking in once Floyd returns.

(4/19/14) Braves starter Gavin Floyd continued his minor-league rehab assignment at Double-A Mississippi Friday, and he wasn't all that sharp this time around.
Floyd tossed 80 pitches in the game, but made it through just 4 2/3 innings. He allowed five runs -- four earned -- on four hits and a walk, while striking out six batters.
Floyd, recovering from Tommy John surgery is likely still a few more rehab outings away from returning. According to MLB.com, the earliest he might be seen in the majors is April 29.

Floyd threw 73 pitches in his rehab outing Sunday. He's on his way back from an elbow injury.
|Gavin Floyd not at his best in Triple-A rehab start |

(4/14/14) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd (elbow) was charged with the loss in his rehab start on Sunday for Triple-A Gwinnett. Floyd allowed two runs -- one earned -- on three hits and three walks while striking out three in 3 2/3 innings pitched. It remains to be seen if Floyd is ready to return from the disabled list.
|Braves schedule changes for Sunday rehab starts for pair |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/12/14) The Braves have shifted their plans in regard to their Sunday rehab outings for Mike Minor and Gavin Floyd, per MLB.com.
Minor, who has been following Floyd in the most recent appearances, will start for Gwinnett. Floyd will start for Rome.
Floyd might return to the Braves after the Sunday start. Minor is expected to require at least a couple more minor league outings before coming back.
|Gavin Floyd's 2013 season didn't get off to a good start, and it didn't last long. He floundered through five April starts for the White Sox, leaving the last of those early with an elbow injury that ultimately resulted in Tommy John surgery. The 10-year veteran failed to notch a win in four decisions and finished with a 5.18 ERA, and though Floyd has been better in the past, owners can't necessarily count on much from him for the 2014 season. Now on a one-year deal with the Braves, he may not return until midseason, though a May debut is possible. In any event, it could take awhile for Floyd to round back into form. At least with the Braves, Floyd has a better chance at receiving run support as well as a more pitcher-friendly park in which to ply his craft. Even in the best-case scenario, Floyd is a late-round pick in NL-only formats.
