Default Floyd Injury Update (could be bad...)

Gonzo reports Floyd is seeking a second opinion on his elbow. Could be much worse than a "strain." (I hear that word and I think of Brent Morel's strain that 'only' kept him out for months...)

The biggest fear according to what he is hearing, is that further diagnosis could reveal an ulnar collateral ligament tear that may require lengthy rest, or surgery that would end his year.

If that's the case Floyd is done probably for the year and certainly with the Sox since he's a free agent.

Over and above not wanting to see any guy get hurt, this is bad for the Sox because he was being looked at already by scouts from other teams, if the Sox somehow stay in it, he can't pitch for them...if they are out of it, they can't trade him for anything.

Just another bad break isn't it. No pun intended.

Default 3rd elbow injury in 11 months

Dam Hayes
Rick Hahn confirms Gavin Floyd is getting multiple opinions on right elbow/forearm injury. #WhiteSox hope to have treatment plan next week

An MRI taken on Saturday showed Floyd doesn’t have a tear in his right elbow.

I am guessing they will give Gavin an injection of Ben Gay Ultra or Icy Hot and send him the massage parlor, not a tear its an inflammation which does respond to prophylactic treatment. Need to get on regular Oil of Wintergreen program and this will work itself out.

Probably helps the rotation.

I'm in the same boat. If he doesn't pitch for us again, I'm not losing any sleep.

Mark Gonzales

Floyd could be transferred from the 15-day DL to the 60-day list to open a spot on the 40-man roster. That could allow the Sox to pursue a left-handed reliever or promote one of their minor league relievers currently not on the 40-man.

Personally? Yes.

Since AJ is gone about the only player left on this roster I have any personal attachment to is PK and he's on the way out.

Well there goes what was to be one of the best days of the 2013 Sox season: Gavid Floyd Trade Day.

I want to see if he gets "it" back, so I'm a little more interested in him than Floyd at this point. It won't take much to push that interest down though.

I want Floyd healthy enough to be traded...at least get something for him even if it's only a class A prospect.

Doesn't sound very promising...

Sorry to see anyone's tenure with the Sox end in such a way. Hope he's able to recover and come back strong next year, wherever he winds up.

4th on the Sox all-time leaderboard in K/9 IP...

Thanks, #34

So happy they didn't trade him last year or in 2011.
