Report: Gavin Floyd may be headed for Tommy John surgery
White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd's injured elbow may require him to undergo season-ending reconstructive elbow surgery.
Floyd, 30, is 0-4 with a 5.18 ERA this season, and for his career he's pitched to a 100 ERA+, 1.34 WHIP and 2.32 K/BB ratio across parts of 10 major-league seasons. Since Floyd is eligible for free agency at season's end, it's entirely possible he's thrown his last pitch as a member of the White Sox. Chicago originally acquired Floyd (and Gio Gonzalez) from the Phillies in exchange for Freddy Garcia back in 2006.
