Gavin Floyd Out Indefinitely With Stress Fracture

By Jeff Todd [March 10, 2015 at 12:16pm CDT]

 

Indians righty Gavin Floyd again has a stress fracture in his right elbow and will be out indefinitely, the club announced (Twitter links). Treatment options are still being assessed, but surgery is a possibility.

After his TJ he now has had 2 elbow fractures. Makes you wonder if he is done.

Makes sense. The ligament is now stronger than the bone. When he puts the stress on the elbow the bone gives instead of the ligament. That is a very good replacement.

Never understood Cleveland giving him 4 mil with his injury history.

I actually read that as a probable cause when he fractured it last year.

When this season is over, Gavin will have been paid $1,250,000 per start the last 3 years.

 

I wonder if he tries again. I can't imagine a team giving him anywhere near $4 million to try.

I'd think teams would probably want him to fully complete his rehab before giving him anything at this point.

I'll never forget Wite and I beating the drum as hard as we could in that 2007 off-season that Floyd was going to break out. Have always been a big Floyd fan, but he had a pretty decent MLB career, shame it looks like it's over at 32.

I loved me some Gavin, and a healthy Gavin with Cleveland's rotation this year scared me. Don't wanna wish injury upon anyone, especially an athlete I like, but I am OK with this.
