The Chicago White Sox lost last night’s contest to the Tampa Bay Rays, but they also lost right-handed starting pitcher Gavin Floyd to an elbow injury. Floyd had to exit the contest in the third inning due to a flexor strain in his throwing elbow, the same injury that sent the right-hander to the disabled list twice last season. After the game, White Sox manager Robin Ventura told reporters – including Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago – that it looks like Floyd will require a trip to the DL. "He has a strain right now. At least that is what we have it as, a muscle toward his elbow," Ventura said. "It is looking more like a DL stint. It is kind of like he had last year. The hits just keep coming. We just have to find a way to keep going." Floyd called the White Sox training staff to the mound in the third inning of last night’s contest. Chicago ultimately removed him from the game and replaced him with Hector Santiago. Ventura said that Santiago would be the likely candidate to replace Floyd in the White Sox rotation if the veteran requires a trip to the DL. Prior to suffering his injury, Floyd was off to a rough start the season. The 30-year-old is now 0-4 with a 5.18 ERA over five starts. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Adam Dunn Thinks ‘People Would Be Batting .400′ If Batting Averages Weren’t Posted on Scoreboard, in Media

You could double Adam Dunn‘s batting average this season, and he still wouldn’t come close to hitting .400. That didn’t stop the slugger from sounding off on players attempting to reach that plateau, though. Dunn, who enters Saturday hitting .128, seems to think that the reporting of batting averages has the potential to impact players mentally. “I’m telling you, if people...

April 27: Rays 10, White Sox 4
