Indians' Gavin Floyd has Cactus League start pushed back
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) Indians pitcher Gavin Floyd had his Cactus League scheduled start on Sunday pushed back to an unknown date in the near future, according to MLB.com on Thursday.
"We're just trying to back up Gavin a few days," Francona said. "We really are adamant with him that we want him to be completely game ready when he starts to pitch, and he's been really good about communicating with us."
Floyd has pitched in just 14 games over the past two seasons due to elbow injuries. He had Tommy John surgery in 2013, and then broke his elbow after making nine starts in 2014. Manager Terry Francona told reporters he's taking a cautious approach with the right-hander moving forward.
Indians P Gavin Floyd comes out of live BP session pain free
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Following his first live batting practice of spring training, Indians pitcher Gavin Floyd came away without any pain the elbow he broke last season.
With the Braves in 2014, Floyd fractured his elbow in a game against the Nationals on June 19. The injury required surgery, which ended his season. Sunday morning's batting practice marked the first time he'd thrown to a batter since that game.
"It's just another step," Floyd said via MLB.com. "It's the first time I had a significant bullpen, cooled down for a little bit and then got back out there. I felt really good. I've just got to continue to make progress and build up strength. Usually, that's just by doing it over and over again, and using spring to do that."
Indians' Gavin Floyd glad to be back on the mound
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) Indians pitcher Gavin Floyd is glad to be back on the mound, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.
Floyd has pitched in just 14 games over the past two seasons due to elbow injuries. He had Tommy John surgery in 2013, and then broke his elbow after making nine starts in 2014.
He's been able to make all of his scheduled bullpen sessions, but the team may still opt to bring him along slowly once games begin. "I wouldn't be surprised if we started him slow," manager Terry Francona said. "I'll leave that up to (pitching coach) Mickey (Callaway). Mickey will get with me and give me his recommendation before we all get together."
For what it's worth, Floyd believes he can open the year in the team's starting rotation. "I just started throwing my curve ball a couple of bullpens ago," he said. "I know where I'm at. If I compared it to other spring trainings, I'm very similar in effort, pitches, velocity and the amount of pitches I'm throwing."
Floyd put up a 2.65 ERA over 54 1/3 innings before undergoing surgery last year.
Indians' Gavin Floyd slightly behind during camp
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Indians pitcher Gavin Floyd is slightly behind to start camp, according to MLB.com.
Floyd had surgery on his elbow last June, but has been able to throw bullpen sessions. Despite his progress, he's considered to be slightly behind the other pitchers in camp. The club is hoping Floyd can pitch in games by the second week of March.
The 32-year-old posted a 2.65 ERA over 54 1/3 innings with Atlanta last season prior to his injury.
Gavin Floyd could slot into Indians' rotation as No. 2 starter
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/20/15) Indians manager Terry Francona indicated Tuesday starting pitcher Gavin Floyd could slot as high as No. 2 in the rotation to help ease some of the stress on the team's younger pitchers, according to MLB.com.
Floyd signed a one-year deal with the Indians in December. He's back in the AL after spending the 2014 season with the Braves. Floyd pitched for the White Sox from 2007-13.
|2014 summary: Though he made a successful return from Tommy John surgery in early May, Gavin Floyd was one of several Braves to miss significant time in 2014 with an elbow injury. But unlike Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy, he didn't need his ligament replaced again. He suffered a fracture in late June. Before then, he looked as good as ever, compiling a 2.65 ERA in nine starts.|
Playing time status: Signed to give the Indians' staff of young guns a "veteran presence," Floyd will only prevent one of Trevor Bauer, Danny Salazar and T.J. House from claiming a rotation spot in spring training. Of course, it's probably just a matter of time before he cedes the job to the odd man out, whether because of another injury or a disparity in talent.
2015 outlook: Floyd was a Fantasy pitcher of some note before his elbow troubles began, even winning 17 games for the White Sox in 2008, but that was at a time when a 4.00 ERA was ahead of the curve. If Floyd regresses to something close to that -- and his 3.79 FIP last year, thanks to typically so-so home run and strikeout rates, suggests he should -- the Indians obviously have the personnel to replace him. You can leave him for AL-only leagues on Draft Day.
