It's official: Gavin Floyd done for 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) The Braves have confirmed that the surgery to repair the fractured elbow of pitcher Gavin Floyd has ended his season.

The 31-year-old Floyd was on his way to a fine year. He finishes it with a 2-2 mark and 2.65 ERA.


Gavin Floyd to have surgery Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) 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
(6/21/2014) 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.


Elbow fracture will land Gavin Floyd on DL


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd will be placed on the disabled list with a fractured elbow the team announced Thursday, after he was forced to leave his start against the Nationals.

Floyd left the game after his right elbow showed swelling following the sixth inning, and had X-rays taken after the game. He was diagnosed with a fracture of the olecranon in his right elbow, and will travel to Atlanta to be evaluated by team doctors Friday.

The team announced he will be placed on the disabled list, though no timetable to return is currently known. A corresponding move will be made Friday.


Gavin Floyd leaves with elbow swelling


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd was forced from his start against the Nationals Thursday, due to swelling in his right elbow.

Floyd cruised through six shutout innings, allowing just two hits and a walk before being forced from the game. He struck out six batters and threw just 64 pitches before leaving, with apparent swelling on the back of the elbow as he left the mound.

The exact nature of the injury is not yet known, but Floyd was taken for X-rays and an examination by Nationals doctors after the game. Floyd is nine months into his return from Tommy John surgery, though it is not known if this issue is related.

Floyd's next start is set for Wednesday in Houston, but he will obviously have to be cleared before he can take the mound.


Report: Teams showing interest in Braves starting pitchers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) The Braves are already hearing from teams interested in trading for a starting pitcher, according to FOX Sports. The Braves could trade Gavin Floyd or Aaron Harang since Alex Wood was sent to the minors to stretch out as a starter.

Gavin Floyd surrenders four runs in no-decision vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd wasn't a factor in the decision Saturday after giving up four earned runs on seven hits in 6 1/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 11-6 loss to the Angels.

Floyd entered the sixth inning with a 1-0 deficit after giving up a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning, but the Angels were able to deliver back-to-back solo home runs in the sixth frame. Floyd stayed in to begin the seventh inning but was removed with one out and two men on. Two different relievers walked a batter in the inning to charge Floyd with his fourth earned run, but the offense bailed him out from taking a loss with a ninth-inning rally. He owns a 2.98 ERA and 39:12 K:BB ratio in 48 1/3 innings going into Thursday's matchup with the Nationals.


Gavin Floyd records first win Monday vs. Rockies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd finally picked up his first win Monday, giving up one earned run on three hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 3-1 victory over the Rockies.

Floyd (1-2) has been unfortunate to not record a win before Monday, as he has yet to surrender more than three earned runs in any of his seven starts. His one run Monday came on a seventh-inning home run. Floyd owns a 2.57 ERA and 35:12 K:BB ratio in 42 innings. He'll take on the Angels Saturday.


Gavin Floyd struggles in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Braves starter Gavin Floyd struggled through his worst start of the season Tuesday, in a 7-5 loss to the Mariners.

Floyd lasted just five innings for the second straight start, though he was much worse this time around. He was tagged for five runs -- three earned -- in his five innings of work, on 10 hits and a walk. He also struck out four batters before being pulled after 86 pitches, with a no-decision.

Floys remains winless in six starts this season, despite a 2.80 ERA in 35 1/3 innings of work. He will look for win No. 1 in his next outing, set for Monday in Colorado. 


Gavin Floyd strikes out three in loss vs. Red Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd took a loss Wednesday, giving up two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks in five innings while striking out three in his team's 4-0 loss to the Red Sox.

Floyd (0-2) hasn't given up more than three earned runs in any of his five starts, but he's still looking for his first win of the season. He owns a 2.37 ERA and 27:8 K:BB ratio in 30 1/3 innings. Floyd is scheduled to face the Mariners Tuesday.


Gavin Floyd solid again in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) Braves starting pitcher Gavin Floyd pitched well Friday, but got little help in a 3-2 win against the Rockies.

Floyd had a lead heading into the sixth inning, but got little cushion from the offense. He allowed the Rockies to tie the game with a solo home run in that frame, ultimately settling for a no-decision while allowing two runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out seven while throwing 72 of 107 pitches for strikes.

Floyd remains winless in four starts since returning from injury, despite posting a 2.49 ERA in that span. He will look for his first win when he takes on the Red Sox in Boston Wednesday.  


Gavin Floyd remains winless through three starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Braves starting pitcher Gavin Floyd continues to search for his first win despite allowing just one earned run Sunday against the Cardinals. Floyd allowed four runs (one earned) on seven hits and three walks, while striking out four in 5 1/3 innings.

Floyd was in command of a 1-0 lead before St. Louis tallied three runs on a bases-clearing double from Kolten Wong with two outs in the second inning. Floyd appeared to have a 1-2-3 inning after striking out Peter Bourjos, but Bourjos reached base on a wild pitch and the inning continued. 

Floyd settled down after the three-run second inning and didn't allow another run until Matt Adams' sac fly in the fifth inning. The game was tied at 4 when Floyd was pulled with one out in the sixth inning. He left the game with a runner on base, but Bourjos did not score and the game remained tied heading into the seventh.

Floyd, who is 0-1 through three starts, will be back on the hill Friday against the Rockies.


Braves change rotation plans as Alex Wood stays in relief


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) The Braves announced a change in their rotation plans for a weekend series against the Cardinals, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Alex Wood, who was scheduled to start Saturday, will remain in the bullpen for the time being. Aaron Harang will move up to start Saturday and Gavin Floyd will start the series finale Sunday.


Gavin Floyd strikes out eight in loss vs. Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd suffered a loss Monday, giving up four runs (three earned) on seven hits in 6 1/3 innings while striking out eight in his team's 4-2 loss to the Giants.

Floyd (0-1) didn't have nearly as much luck Monday as he did in his debut last week despite posting a far superior 8:0 K:BB ratio against the Giants. He owns a 2.70 ERA and 13:2 K:BB ratio through 13 1/3 innings. Floyd is slated to face the Cardinals Sunday.


Gavin Floyd stays in rotation


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) The Braves will keep Gavin Floyd in the team's rotation, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Floyd will push Alex Wood to the bullpen. Floyd signed with the club in the offseason, and took the first month of the season to continue his rehab after Tommy John. He gave up one run over seven innings during his first start of the year.


Gavin Floyd like to stay in rotation; Alex Wood could be out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) The Braves do not plan to have pitcher Gavin Floyd work out of the bullpen, manager Fredi Gonzalez told MLB.com Wednesday.

"He's one guy that would not go to the bullpen, I don't think, just because of the Tommy John [surgery]," Gonzalez said. "We all know how the bullpen thing is. You get up, you get down, you go in, you don't go in. You've got to warm up in 50 [games], and I don't want to do that to him."

Floyd impressed in his return from the disabled list Tuesday, and Gonzalez said he wants to keep Floyd in the rotation moving forward. Despite that, the team still hasn't scheduled Floyd for his next start.

The Braves still do not plan to use a six-man rotation, so a decision will need to be made about how the rotation will shake out. Alex Wood could be the odd-man out, given the team's desire to keep him on an innings limit this season. 


Braves announce rotation plans for series vs. Cubs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) The Braves announced Wednesday their rotation plans for a three-game series this weekend against the Cubs, which starts Friday.

Julio Teheran will start the series opener and be followed by Ervin Santana and Alex Wood, per MLB.com. Santana rejoins the rotation after missing one start due to a thumb injury. Gavin Floyd started in Teheran's absence Tuesday against the Cardinals.


Gavin Floyd pitches seven one-run innings in debut Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd delivered a strong debut Tuesday, giving up one earned run on six hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out five in his team's 2-1 win over the Cardinals.

Floyd didn't factor into the decision in the start after giving up a game-tying RBI single in the sixth inning, but his performance was encouraging after his long road back from Tommy John surgery. Floyd is currently on the outside looking in to remain in the rotation, but he could be given another start this weekend if Ervin Santana can't go.


Gavin Floyd pegged for Tuesday start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd will start Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Ervin Santana was scheduled to pitch, but he'll be pushed back with a thumb injury. Floyd was activated from the disabled list Sunday. He'll make his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery last year. It's unclear what role Floyd will fill following Tuesday's start. 


Gavin Floyd activated from the disabled list


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd was activated from the disabled list Sunday.

It's unclear what role Floyd will play with the club. The team's rotation has performed well while Floyd has been hurt, and he may start the year in the bullpen. Floyd has been sidelined after undergoing Tommy John surgery last season. 


Gavin Floyd appears destined for bullpen role upon return


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2014) Plans have apparently changed in regard to Braves right-hander Gavin Floyd, who is set to come off the disabled list Sunday after completing his rehab from Tommy John surgery.

The loss for the season of starters Brandon Beachy and Kris Medlen motivated the signing of Floyd. But the emergence of Alex Wood and Aaron Harang will likely result in Floyd returning as a reliever, per ESPN.

"When he's ready, we'll put him in there some place," said Fredi Gonzalez rather cryptically.

Wood and Harang had both been lights-out until experiencing poundings in their last starts. But neither seems destined to lose their place to Floyd in the rotation any time soon. The Braves, however, could monitor the workload of the 23-year-old Wood. 


Braves not sure how to handle rotation glut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) The Braves might surprisingly have a surplus of starting pitching, with Gavin Floyd set to come off the disabled list Sunday. In fact, they have so many pitchers, manager Fredi Gonzalez is not yet sure how he will handle the glut when Floyd is ready.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Braves will activate Floyd Sunday, at the end of his rehab assignment, but there is no plan to get him into the rotation yet. Alex Wood is still scheduled to start Sunday, and Gonzalez also told MLB.com he does not plan on moving him to the bullpen


Gavin Floyd pitches five innings in Triple-A start Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd gave up one earned run on four hits and one walk in five innings while striking out five in Tuesday's rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett.

Floyd could be finished with his rehab assignment after pitching solidly Tuesday. If so, he could be back with the Braves this weekend and potentially start Sunday against the Giants depending on how the Braves line up the rotation.


Gavin Floyd could return after Triple-A rehab start Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Braves pitcher Gavin Floyd is making his final scheduled rehab appearance Tuesday in a start with Triple-A Gwinnett, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The team could alter Floyd's timetable depending on his performance Tuesday, but he appears ready to return to the Braves within the next week. He'll fortify an already strong Braves rotation that's been the best in the league through April.


Braves contemplating rotation for near-future


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) 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.
