UPDATE: Floyd has been placed on the disabled list, with Dylan Axelrod moving into the White Sox’s rotation.
Gavin Floyd exited Sunday’s start after just two innings with a sore elbow, but an MRI exam revealed no structural damage and the White Sox have diagnosed him with a strain.
Robin Ventura told Jeff Seidel of MLB.com that the injury is “nothing that would put him out for the rest of the year” and for now at least Floyd remains on the active roster.
However, considering he already spent time on the disabled list with elbow problems earlier this season shutting him down for a while seems like the smart move. Floyd called this current problem “the same kind of deal, the same kind of feel” as the initial injury, so clearly something isn’t right.
Floyd has been scratched from Friday’s scheduled start while the White Sox decide how to proceed.
