Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun is reporting that free agent starter Gavin Floyd is close to signing a one-year deal with an unspecified team. Floyd, who was born in Annapolis, met with Orioles reps at the winter meetings but Encina specifies that the unknown team is not the Orioles.

Floyd went on the disabled list after his fifth start of the 2013 season on April 27, eventually undergoing surgery to repair his flexor tendon and elbow in early May. From 2008-12, he established himself as a dependable back-of-the-rotation starter, compiling a 4.12 ERA and making at least 29 starts in each of the five seasons.

With the one-year deal, Floyd will have the chance to rebuild his value and make a play for a multi-year deal next off-season. He turns 31 years old on January 27.

    Of COURSE it’s not the Orioles…
    That would make too much sense…

    The Yankees are too busy trying to trout and forget about Cano and A-rod.

    It’s the Phillies. That’s his original org, but the big reason I’m guessing that is because Ruben Amaro, Jr. is a notorious bottom-feeder, and he KNOWS he hasn’t addressed the pitching issues for 2014. Signing guys who changed their names recently is an interesting approach but he still needs another discount arm or two.
