by Michael Hurcomb |

The Indians announced Tuesday they signed pitcher Gavin Floyd to a one-year contract. Floyd will earn $4 million in base salary and could earn $6 million in performance bonuses, according to Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

General manager Chris Antonetti said Floyd will be part of the starting rotation. Floyd's 2014 season with the Braves ended in late June when he underwent surgery for a fractured elbow. Antonetti said Tuesday the fracture in Floyd's elbow has healed and the team expects him to be ready for full activity in spring training.

Floyd was limited to nine starts in 2014 after missing most of the season in 2013 due to Tommy John surgery. He went 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA last season. He is 72-72 with a 4.40 ERA in 11 MLB seasons.
