|Gavin Floyd six weeks from throwing after follow-up |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/26/14) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd visited a doctor for a follow-up exam on his fractured elbow and came away with no bad news, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Floyd, who underwent surgery in late June to repair his elbow, and is still six weeks from being cleared to throw. He is still expected to be fully healthy by the start of spring training next season, after getting just 54 1/3 innings in prior to the injury this season.

|Gavin Floyd to have surgery Wednesday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(6/24/14) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd will have surgery to repair his fractured elbow Wednesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Floyd is expected to miss the rest of the season after having surgery. His exact timetable is unclear, and will depend on how his elbow heals. Floyd signed a one-year deal with Atlanta during the offseason.
|Report: Gavin Floyd likely headed for season-ending surgery |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/21/14) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd will likely require season-ending surgery to repair a fractured elbow, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
An MRI on the elbow confirmed that Floyd's surgically-repaired ligament remains intact, but the pitcher still faces a lengthy recovery process after suffering the fracture while delivering a pitch Thursday. The team hasn't made an official announcement and will likely wait to do so until Floyd sees another doctor early next week. Floyd made nine stars before suffering the injury, going 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA and 45:13 K:BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings.
|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.
