Gavin Floyd

  1. Jeff Keppinger for $12 million is a bit of a reach

    Dec 5, 2012, 2:17 PM EDT

    Jeff Keppinger

    Obviously, it’s a good idea not to give three-year contracts to part-time players unless you have to. Unfortunately, in this winter’s free agent market, the White Sox felt they had to. Jeff Keppinger probably had multiple teams interested in him at $8 million for two years, so the first team to go to $12 million…

  2. Gavin Floyd may not be long for Chicago with White Sox open to trading starting pitching

    After picking up Gavin Floyd‘s option and signing Jake Peavy to a two-year contract the White Sox have more rotation depth than most teams and new general manager Rick Hahn is hinting that he might shop a starting pitcher for help in other areas. “I suspect given this market for pitchers that is out there…

  3. John Danks ahead of schedule in recovery from surgery

    Nov 1, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    John Danks

    By bringing back Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd the White Sox now have five starters in place even with John Danks out following shoulder surgery. However, it sounds like Danks might be back on the mound sooner than initially expected. Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Danks has already started a throwing program three months…

  4. White Sox sign Jake Peavy to $29 million contract, decline Kevin Youkilis’ option

    Oct 30, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    The White Sox’s 2013 rotation is set to look a whole lot like the 2012 group after all. The team today re-signed Jake Peavy to a tw0-year, $29 million deal and picked up Gavin Floyd‘s $9.5 million option for 2013. The team also announced that it had declined Kevin Youkilis‘ $13 million option and Brett…

  5. White Sox beat Rays, gain ground on Tigers

    Sep 28, 2012, 11:31 PM EDT

    Alex Rios

    The White Sox still aren’t hitting. Fortunately, Gavin Floyd and the bullpen were good enough to overcome that for one night. Floyd allowed one run over five innings and combined with five relievers on a three-hitter Friday in a 3-1 win over the Rays. The White Sox moved to within one within one game of…

  6. Francisco Liriano is out of the White Sox rotation for now

    Sep 12, 2012, 4:05 PM EDT

    Francisco Liriano

    When the White Sox bumped Francisco Liriano from his start tonight in favor of Gavin Floyd, it was supposed to be a two-day move, with Liriano possibly pitching out of the pen against the Tigers and then starting Friday against the Twins. That plan is out the window now. The White Sox announced that they’d…

  7. White Sox pick Gavin Floyd over Francisco Liriano versus Tigers

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

    The White Sox won’t be easing Gavin Floyd back into the rotation in his return from a sore elbow; he’ll start Wednesday night in the third game of a four-game series against the rival Tigers. The change pushes Francisco Liriano back to Friday, when he’ll face the Twins. By making the move, the White Sox…

  8. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  9. Injured Gavin Floyd calls bullpen session “a step in the right direction”

    Sep 4, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    On the disabled list with elbow problems for the second time this season, Gavin Floyd threw a 20-pitch bullpen session yesterday and called it “a step in the right direction.” Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports that Floyd will throw another bullpen session Thursday, mixing in breaking balls along with fastballs, at which point the White…

    Aug 28, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    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…

  11. Red Sox could seek out big-name targets this winter

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    The Red Sox have had an average payroll in excess of $170 million the last three years. With Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett departing and David Ortiz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Cody Ross all set to become free agents, they’re currently looking at something less than half of that for 2013. It figures to give…

    Aug 20, 2012, 8:01 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira Getty

    Mark Teixeira sat out the entire weekend series against the Red Sox due to left wrist soreness, but Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports that he’s playing first base and batting cleanup tonight against Gavin Floyd and the White Sox. Teixeira originally injured the wrist on a swing against the Red Sox on July 29 and…

  13. John Danks needs shoulder surgery, out for season

    Jul 31, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    John Danks

    John Danks, who has spent the last month and a half on the disabled list with shoulder soreness, will undergo exploratory surgery and miss the rest of the season. His status for 2013 won’t be known until after the surgery. Danks’ name came up in trade rumors after last season, but the White Sox felt…

    Jul 23, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    Out since July 7 with a sore elbow, Gavin Floyd is back from the disabled list and will start tonight versus Minnesota. Floyd has struggled against the Twins throughout his career, going 5-11 with a 5.87 ERA in 17 starts, and that includes 1-7 with an 8.06 ERA since 2010. Prior to the injury Floyd…

  15. Gavin Floyd on track to return from disabled list Monday

    Jul 20, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    It looks like Gavin Floyd‘s first career stint on the disabled list will be a brief one. Floyd, currently sidelined with right elbow tendinitis, threw 40-50 pitches in a bullpen session this afternoon. The White Sox want to see how he responds tomorrow before making an official announcement, but pitching coach Don Cooper told Dan…

  16. White Sox place Gavin Floyd on DL, activate Philip Humber

    Jul 17, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

    Gavin Floyd was scratched from his scheduled Monday start with an elbow injury that the White Sox hoped would prove minor, but today they placed him on the disabled list. The move was made to create a roster opening for Philip Humber, who returns from the DL after missing the past month with an elbow…

  17. Gavin Floyd scratched from tonight’s start with elbow injury

    Jul 16, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

    Gavin Floyd won’t make his scheduled start tonight against the Red Sox because of forearm and elbow soreness, but Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago reports that an MRI exam showed no structural damage and for now at least he’ll remain on the active roster. Dylan Axelrod will make the spot start in place of Floyd…

  18. White Sox add first-round bust Daniel Moskos on waivers

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Daniel Moskos

    The Pirates made Daniel Moskos the fourth overall pick in the 2007 draft, selecting him ahead of Matt Wieters, Jarrod Parker, Madison Bumgarner and Jason Heyward, among others. Five years and 24 1/3 major league innings later, he’s now a member of the White Sox organization after being claimed off waivers. The selection of Moskos…

  19. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:15 AM EDT

    arroyo getty

    Reds 4, Brewers 3: Bronson Arroyo had a no-hitter through seven and then ended up with a no-decision. Guess that happens when you ask a starter who usually throws less than seven innings a start to go eight, eh?  Still a nice game until that eighth, and a win for the Redlegs. Giants 2, Dodgers…

  20. Ichiro hit two homers yesterday

    Jun 3, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Ichiro is not a power hitter. He has just 98 homers in his career. Two of them came last night, however, as he hit two solo shots off Gavin Floyd to help the M’s — who suddenly have a ton of offense — beat the White Sox 10-8. Ichiro, who was recently moved to the…

  21. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 17, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Colorado Rockies

    Rockies 6, Diamondbacks 1: I took my bike out for a spin for the first time in a while last evening. It was a nice ride on a nice night. At least apart from the crazy, over-the-handlebars wreck I got into at the corner of Alpath and Johnston Road. There were no apparent injuries at…

  22. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 30, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 4, Padres 1: Madison Bumgarner keeps rolling (7.2 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 6K). After the game he explained his recent success by saying “I’m just trying to make pitches.”  I’ve heard that for 30 years and I’m still not quite sure what it means but I always like hearing it for some reason.…

  23. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 25, 2012, 6:03 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the New York Yankees in Arlington, Texas

    Rangers 2, Yankees 0: Yu Darvish finally arrives. Eight and a third innings, ten strikeouts and a big goose egg in the runs column against the best offense in baseball. Rays 5, Angels 0: David Price: five-hit shutout. Albert Pujols: 0 for 4. He has the lowest slugging percentage of anyone in last night’s Angels…
