Gavin Floyd SP ATL 3 Months

Gavin Floyd underwent season-ending surgery Wednesday to repair a fractured olecranon in right elbow.

The presumption is that the procedure would be season-ending, and the Braves have confirmed it. It's a really unfortunate blow for Floyd, who had been pitching well after returning from Tommy John surgery. He'll be a free agent this winter.

Gavin Floyd is likely to undergo season-ending surgery to repair a fracture of the olecranon in his right elbow.

The good news is that an MRI has confirmed he has no ligament damage. However, the surgery to repair the fracture is expected and a decision will be made official after Floyd sees a doctor in Atlanta on Monday or Tuesday. The right-hander will be a free agent this winter.

Braves placed RHP Gavin Floyd on the 15-day disabled list with a fracture of the olecranon in his right elbow.

Floyd suffered the fracture while throwing his last pitch of Thursday's start against the Nationals. The Braves have yet to offer a timetable for the right-hander's return, but there's certainly a good possibility that his season is over. Ryan Buchter has taken his spot on the roster, but Alex Wood will be up next week when Floyd's rotation spot comes up.

Gavin Floyd has been diagnosed with a fracture of the olecranon in his right elbow.

It's not clear how Floyd suffered the injury, but it's no surprise that the ailment is serious given how much swelling he had. The righty will be re-evaluated on Friday before the Braves determined how much time he might miss, but obviously he'll be placed on the disabled list. Alex Wood figures to replace him in the rotation next week.

Gavin Floyd left Thursday's start versus the Nationals with posterior swelling in his right elbow.

Floyd threw one pitch in the seventh inning before exiting with a noticeable knot on his pitching elbow. The best-case scenario is probably bursitis, but the Braves are obviously hoping the ligament isn't involved. Even if he gets good news, a trip to the disabled list would seem likely. Floyd was making his ninth start since recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Gavin Floyd left Thursday's start against the Nationals with a possible elbow injury.

The Braves' trainer came out to check on Floyd after he threw his first pitch of the seventh inning. The righty was having his elbow looked at before walking off the field. Obviously, it's a bad sign given that Floyd was making his ninth start since returning from Tommy John surgery. He had spun six scoreless frames before exiting. We probably won't know much about his status until after the game.

Gavin Floyd surrendered four earned runs in 6 1/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Angels.

Floyd earned his first win since undergoing Tommy John surgery Monday at Coors Field, but he didn't quite have it on Saturday night against the Angels.

He has a cool 2.98 ERA on the year.

Gavin Floyd finally earned his first win since Tommy John surgery after pitching 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball against the Rockies at Coors Field on Monday.

Corey Dickerson's seventh-inning homer was the only damage. Floyd entered with a fine 2.80 ERA in six starts, but he had an 0-2 record anyway, even though the Braves were 3-3 in his outings. He's hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his seven starts. Since he also went winless in five starts prior to surgery last year, the win tonight was his first since Oct. 3, 2012.
