|Gavin Floyd throws live batting practice Wednesday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(3/5/14) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd tossed live batting practice for the first time Wednesday, according to MLB.com.
It was the first time Floyd faced live hitters since his Tommy John surgery. He'll continue to throw live batting practices over the next couple weeks until he's able to ramp up his workload. He's hoping to join the team's rotation in May.
|Mike Minor, Gavin Floyd scheduled to throw Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/3/14) Braves pitcher Mike Minor will throw his first bullpen of the spring Wednesday, while pitcher Gavin Floyd will face hitters in bating practice Wednesday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery last May, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Minor is getting a late start after undergoing surgery on his urethra this offseason. Floyd is unlikely to be back before May but has look good during his rehab so far.
|Gavin Floyd cleared to begin throwing curveballs |

(2/17/14) Braves starting pitcher Gavin Floyd (elbow) took another step in his rehab Monday when he was cleared to begin throwing curveballs after a pain-free bullpen session, according to MLB.com.
"If you didn’t know that he was coming off Tommy John stuff, then you would think, 'Boy this guy is really ready to start the season,'" manager Fredi Gonzalez said.
|Gavin Floyd hoping to return to game action in May |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/13/14) Right-hander Gavin Floyd said is planning on joining the Braves rotation in May after completing rehab from Tommy John surgery, per MLB.com. But he admitted that it's too early to be confident in his projection.
Floyd lost nearly the entire 2013 season with the White Sox. He made five starts without a win and finished with a 5.18 ERA before going down.
|Gavin Floyd had bigger offer from Baltimore |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(12/17/13) The Orioles offered Gavin Floyd a bigger contract, but Floyd turned them down, according to the Baltimore Sun.
The team reportedly offered Floyd a two-year, $20 million deal with incentives. Floyd signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Braves. His deal with Atlanta allows for $4.5 million in incentives. Floyd is a Maryland native. He had a 5.18 ERA in just five games last season before having Tommy John surgery.
|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.
