Floyd (shoulder) remains unlikely to return before the end of the 2016 season, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd has been out of commission since June 26 with the shoulder injury and has been spent the last two months rehabbing at the Blue Jays' spring training complex in Florida. While he indicated he's "making good progress" and has resumed throwing, Floyd remains without an official timetable for a return.

Floyd (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Saturday, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd has been out for over a month and could be sidelined for the rest of the season, so moving him to the 60-day DL was an inevitability with the Blue Jays needing to open up a 40-man roster spot for Chris Colabello, who was reinstated Saturday after completing an 80-game suspension for a positive PED test.

Before suffering a possible season-ending shoulder injury on June 25, Floyd posted a 4.06 ERA and 1.00 WHIP while notching 30 strikeouts in 28 appearances (31 innings).

EDGE Analysis

The veteran was a productive member of the team's struggling bullpen through the first couple months of the season before getting injured. Originally he was diagnosed with right shoulder tightness, only later to find that 33-year-old had actually torn a lat and would miss 8-to-12 weeks. Even if Floyd is able to return this season, his role will be minimal as the team's pen has been bolstered by the acquisition of Jason Grilli and the improvement of other relievers who had previously been struggling.

Floyd (shoulder) suffered a torn lat and will be out for 8-to-12 weeks, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was recently placed on the 15-day DL on Sunday with right shoulder tightness that forced him to leave Saturday's game against the White Sox. He will likely come back in late August if he doesn't suffer any setbacks during his rehab.

Floyd (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL on Sunday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was diagnosed with right shoulder tightness after the injury forced him to come out of the game during Saturday's 10-8 win over the White Sox. The right-hander underwent an MRI to determine the severity of his setback, but the Blue Jays don't expect to have the results available until later Sunday. With Floyd out of commission, the Blue Jays recalled Bo Schultz from Triple-A Buffalo to provide a healthy arm in the bullpen.

Tests are scheduled for Sunday to further diagnose the issue and manager John Gibbons hinted strongly that a trip to the disabled list was imminent, Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

hat would be a blow for the Blue Jays, who have come to rely on Floyd fairly heavily this season. Floyd underwent Tommy John surgery in 2013 before fracturing the olecranon bone in his elbow in both 2014 and 2015. After the game, Gibbons said he expected the team to make a decision very soon on whether the veteran will be placed on the DL. If so, Drew Hutchison is most likely to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo.

Floyd left this afternoon's game with tightness in his throwing shoulder, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd flipped the ball back to Thole, asking for a new baseball, and then called for the trainer during the sixth inning of Saturday's game against the White Sox. He pitched to just two batters before being removed. The veteran has a 4.06 ERA in 31.1 innings pitched this season (29 appearances).

Floyd pitched two perfect innings and struck out two against the Orioles on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was called on with the Jays down 8-4 in the fifth. Granted, it was a low-leverage situation, but the appearance was his best in quite some time. The veteran started 2016 as one of the team's more dependable relievers, however he's struggled greatly over the past month. Floyd's ERA sat at a season-low 1.65 on May 11, but has ballooned to 4.25 since. Entering Sunday, he had allowed 10 runs in his previous 12 appearances (11.1 innings). If Floyd can work his way back into mid to high-leverage situations, then he can become a decent source of holds for those in deep leagues.

Floyd gave up two runs in the 11th inning Sunday to get the loss against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd has given up runs in five of his last six outings and could be looking at some time off over the next couple of days. "Well, I just think that he was worn down," manager John Gibbons said. "He's been working and pitching a lot. There's a lot of innings over his career and he's had some arm issues, so we're trying to be careful with him, but the way the games have all gone the last week, they're tight games and he's been so good for us. I just think he's a little bit out of gas right now."

Despite giving up a solo homer, Floyd (2-3) picked up the win in Saturday's wild walk-off victory over the Red Sox. He struck out one during his only inning of work.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran isn't pitching as well as he did from April to mid-May, but he is seeing plenty of opportunities to get some stats. The game was tied when he gave up a home run to David Oritz, so Floyd was not only lucky to earn a win, but even more fortunate to not be tagged with the loss. Manager John Gibbons has praised Floyd repeatedly for being a reliable arm early in the year out the team's struggling pen. In 18 appearances this season (22.2 innings), Floyd has picked up two wins and three holds while maintaining a slim 3.18 ERA.
