Floyd Reinjures Pitching Elbow

Tuesday, March 10

The Indians announced they are currently exploring treatment options:

Floyd, 32, pitched only nine games last season with the Atlanta Braves due to a fractured olecranon in his pitching elbow. He has been limited to just 14 starts since the end of the 2012 season due to injuries. In 2013, he needed Tommy John surgery while pitching with the Chicago White Sox.

Cleveland signed Floyd to a one-year, $4 million deal in December. Floyd can make up to $10 million in 2015 with incentives, though his latest injury makes that unlikely. He is yet to make a spring training appearance after dealing with soreness.
