White Sox starter Gavin Floyd left tonight’s start against the Rays in the third inning with a flexor strain in his right elbow. It is the same injury that caused Floyd to go on the disabled list two separate times last year. The right-hander retired the first two hitters he faced in the third before being taken out. The Rays scored off of Floyd early thanks to a first-inning two-run home run by Ben Zobrist.

Though he has racked up a lot of strikeouts, Floyd has been very hittable over his first five starts, allowing 27 hits in 24.1 innings, which has then led to a 4.98 ERA.

Floyd was relieved by Hector Santiago, who is one candidate to replace Floyd in the rotation should the need arise.
