Indians send four to DL, including Nick Swisher, Gavin Floyd


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Indians set their Opening Day roster by sending four players to the disabled list. 

RHP Gavin Floyd was sent to the 60-day disabled list. Floyd was coming back from a stress fracture of his elbow and reinjured himself in spring training.

Infielder Zach Walters (oblique), outfielder Nick Swisher (knees) and RHP Josh Tomlin (shoulder) were all placed on the 15-day disabled list. 


Indians' Gavin Floyd to begin motion activities in two weeks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Indians pitcher Gavin Floyd is set to begin range-of-motion activities in his surgically-repaired elbow in approximately two weeks, MLB.com reports.

Floyd is sidelined indefinitely after undergoing surgery Tuesday. He was limited to nine starts last season due to a stress fracture in his pitching elbow.


Indians SP Gavin Floyd to undergo elbow surgery Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Indians starting pitcher Gavin Floyd is set to undergo elbow surgery Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

Doctors will perform a refixation of the right olecranon bone in Floyd's elbow. He underwent Tommy John surgery in 2013 and made just nine starts last season before suffering a stress fracture. He was diagnosed with another stress fracture last week and sought a second opinion before deciding to undergo Tuesday's procedure, which could cost Floyd the entire season.

"He's certainly out for the foreseeable future," manager Terry Francona said. "More important than talking in March about him pitching in August or September, is our getting him healthy so he can proceed with his career. As he starts to rehab and do all that stuff, some of those things get more clear. I think the safe presumption is he's going to miss a good portion, if not the whole year."


Indians seeking second opinion for SP Gavin Floyd (elbow)


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians' Gavin Floyd out indefinitely with stress fracture in elbow


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Indians starting pitcher Gavin Floyd has suffered a re-injury of the stress fracture in his elbow that ended his 2014 season prematurely and is out indefinitely, the team announced.

The team has yet to decide on a course of treatment for the pitcher, but it's possible that he'll have to undergo surgery on the elbow. Once the team settles on his treatment, a timetable will be determined for his recovery.

Floyd underwent Tommy John surgery in 2013 and made just nine starts last season before suffering the fracture in his elbow. He was shut down last week due to "general soreness" that was reported to be unrelated to the elbow, but the pitcher was scheduled for an MRI on his elbow this week. He went 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA and 45:13 K:BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings last season.

With Floyd sidelined, Danny Salazar, T.J. House, Zach McAllister, Bruce Chen and Josh Tomlin will be competing for two spots in the rotation.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Indians starting pitcher Gavin Floyd said Friday his live batting practice session Wednesday was shut down after seven pitches due to "general soreness," per MLB.com. Manager Terry Francona said Floyd's general soreness is unrelated to the fractured elbow he suffered in June.

Indians' Gavin Floyd has Cactus League start pushed back


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) 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
(3/1/2015) 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
(2/25/2015) 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.

The 32-year-old posted a 2.65 ERA over 54 1/3 innings with Atlanta last season prior to his injury.

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.
