Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez says that starter Gavin Floyd will make at least two more rehab starts before rejoining the team,’s Mark Bowman reports. The right-hander could rejoin them in early May, which would mark a year since he had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.

Floyd, 31, signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Braves in December. He had spent the previous seven years with the White Sox, posting a 4.22 ERA over 1,042 2/3 innings spanning 168 starts and seven relief appearances. Despite having lost Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy to Tommy John surgeries of their own, the Braves aren’t exactly scrambling for pitching help. They currently lead all of baseball in starting pitcher ERA at 1.47.

    I’m curious to see if Floyd will start considering how well Harang has been pitching. Maybe they’ll have Floyd pitch out of the pen like Medlen did coming off of his surgery.

    He should take his time. Harang is lights out. He probably won’t last all season so Floyd can come in in the middle of the season.
