Gavin Floyd 'tentatively plans' for Tommy John surgery
by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com (5/3/2013) White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd "tentatively plans" to have Tommy John surgery after he was diagnosed with a tear in his flexor muscle, USA TODAY reports.

Second opinion confirms muscle tear for Gavin Floyd
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (5/2/2013) White Sox manager Robin Ventura admitted Thursday that he was worried about starter Gavin Floyd's elbow injury, and it appears as if his worst fears came true. Floyd was diagnosed Thursday with a tear in the flexor muscle in his right elbow, which has led to instability in his ulnar collateral ligament.
Floyd might need surgery to repair the muscle, a decision that is expected to be made Monday when he sees another doctor for a third opinion in New York. A timeline will likely be established once it is determined whether the injury will require surgery.
Floyd has been on the disabled list three times since last season due to problems with this elbow.
White Sox worried about Gavin Floyd
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (5/2/2013) White Sox manager Robin Ventura did not have much good news Thursday regarding starting pitcher Gavin Floyd, who is on the 15-day disabled list due to a right flexor muscle strain.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the team is concerned that Floyd's elbow could require surgery to repair an ulnar collateral ligament injury. Floyd is currently seeking multiple opinions on the nature and extent of the injury, but Ventura did not seem upbeat when discussing his prospects.
"Yeah, I think the news isn't always good," Ventura said of Floyd. "It's just one of those where you keep getting a different opinion just to make sure you have all your bases covered."
Floyd avoided surgery despite hitting the disabled list twice last season with elbow problems, and the team is obviously hoping he can do so again this time around.
"Once you go there [surgery], it's for a long time," Ventura said. "I think for him it's the comfort of knowing he's doing the right thing, getting enough opinions from experts. I'm not an expert. I'm going to let them kind of figure that out. Ultimately it's his decision."
Gavin Floyd seeking multiple opinions
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (5/2/2013) White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said starting pitcher Gavin Floyd will seek multiple opinions on his elbow injury, according to CSN Chicago. Floyd was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a right flexor muscle strain.
The team sought multiple opinions since it's Floyd's third elbow injury in 11 months.
"We hope to have a treatment plan next week," Hahn said.
No ligament or tendon damage for Gavin Floyd
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (4/28/2013) An MRI on White Sox starting pitcher Gavin Floyd's elbow indicated there were no damage to the ligaments or tendons, which is good news because either of those injuries could have led to Tommy John surgery. Floyd was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday.
"Last year it was a different spot," Floyd said, per ESPN. "It was kind of the same thing (Saturday). It was one pitch and I felt it and I was like 'I’m going to pitch through it.' I threw a couple more and it was just getting worse and stiffening up and I threw one to (Evan) Longoria and felt like I was babying it in there and started protecting myself. (Catcher) Tyler (Flowers) knew and he came out and talked to me."
The White Sox have no timetable for Floyd's return.
"I don’t think there’s anything we are doing that’s making it happen," manager Robin Ventura said. "I think baseball makes that happen. Things happen. I don’t think it has anything to do with the way they are training. It’s just part of playing baseball. It’s not a natural act. You know hopefully they get over it quick."
Gavin Floyd placed on 15-day DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (4/28/2013) The White Sox placed starting pitcher Gavin Floyd on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a flexor muscle strain in his right arm. Hector Santiago will replace Floyd in the rotation.
Floyd had to leave his start Saturday against the Rays with the injury. He is 0-4 with a 5.18 ERA through five starts.
Gavin Floyd headed to DL
by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com (4/27/2013) White Sox manager Robin Ventura said after Saturday's game against the Rays that Gavin Floyd will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a flexor muscle strain in his right elbow. Hector Santiago will replace him in the rotation.
Floyd suffered the injury in his outing Saturday night and took his fourth loss by allowing two runs over 2 2/3 innings of a 10-4 loss. The right-hander has a 5.18 ERA.
Judging by past, Gavin Floyd could end up on DL
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (4/27/2013) White Sox starting pitcher Gavin Floyd has been diagnosed with a flexor strain in his right elbow, an injury he has some experience with. Floyd strained the muscle last season in August, and was forced to go on the disabled list, despite an MRI that showed no structural damage.
Given that diagnosis from last season, Fantasy owners who have been relying on Floyd this season might want to make other plans for a few weeks. Floyd was back on the mound just 16 days after suffering the injury, so we certainly hope this is an injury that will require rest and time off. But that will still likely cost him a few weeks of the Fantasy season, if it is the case.
At the very least, Floyd looks like a risky start for Fantasy Week 5 (April 29-May 5), with a Friday start tentatively scheduled against the Royals.
Elbow injury forces Gavin Floyd out early
by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com (4/27/2013) White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd left Saturday's start against the Rays in the third inning due to a flexor muscle strain in his right elbow. The right-hander threw 47 pitches, 28 for strikes, and was pulled after Ben Zobrist grounded out in the third inning. He was replaced on the mound by Hector Sanchez.
Floyd allowed two runs on two hits with two walks over 2 2/3 innings before the early exit. He also struck out one and left in line for the loss.
The 30-year-old spent time on the disabled list last season due to elbow tendinitis.
His next start -- if healthy -- is scheduled for Friday against the Royals.

Gavin Floyd drops third-straight game
by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com (4/15/2013) White Sox starting pitcher Gavin Floyd suffered another loss Monday at Toronto. Floyd fell to 0-3 after three starts as he struggled and couldn't finish five innings.

In the end, Floyd allowed four earned runs on nine hits and three walks over 4 1/3 innings. He allowed two homers, struck out six and threw 99 pitches, 59 for strikes.
Floyd, who has only been afforded six runs of support in his three starts, has gotten worse with each passing outing. He went six innings and gave up two runs in his opener, went 5 1/3 the next time out with five runs allowed and couldn't finish five innings Monday for an ERA of 6.32.
Floyd will look to get his season on track when he next takes the mound on Saturday against the Twins.
