According to the official White Sox Twitter feed, right-handed starter Gavin Floyd has been placed on 15-day disabled list with a flexor muscle strain in his right elbow. Deunte Heath, a reliever, was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte to fill the roster vacancy.

Floyd suffered the elbow strain Saturday in the third inning of an eventual 10-4 loss to the Rays. He wound up allowing two earned runs in 2 2/3 frames and now has a 5.18 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 24 1/3 total innings this season.

Floyd also had a flexor strain last year and missed around three weeks.

Hector Santiago will take his spot in the White Sox starting rotation.

      This post was made in response to a regular poster making his regular anti-Blue Jays post, which has been deleted. If our moderators wish to delete my posts, that is ok with me.

        Did that Ole Poo Flinger finally get himself deleted and banned?
