It looks like Gavin Floyd‘s first career stint on the disabled list will be a brief one.
Floyd, currently sidelined with right elbow tendinitis, threw 40-50 pitches in a bullpen session this afternoon. The White Sox want to see how he responds tomorrow before making an official announcement, but pitching coach Don Cooper told Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com that he is likely to return to start Monday against the Twins.
“He seems like he’s ready to go,” Cooper said. “He threw all of his pitches. It went well. (Recovery is) important. I think he’s going to be ok because it went very well. (Trainer Herm Schneider) and him took the time to work on it and he’s feeling better. He looks good.”
Floyd, 29, has a 4.54 ERA and 91/31 K/BB ratio in 103 innings across 17 starts this season. He was in a nice groove prior to landing on the disabled list, delivering three scoreless outings in his last four.
