Saved From Forclosure, House Gets Second Chance

While the news that Gavin Floyd will be out for most or all of the 2015 season is bad for the Indians as a team and as a business (he was guaranteed $4M), it did have a positive effect on one player, T.J. House. House was an integral part of the Indians rotation by the end of 2014, being promoted in May when he became a regular part of the rotation for about a month, then as a spot...

Gavin Floyd reinjures elbow, may require surgery

The Cleveland Indians handed Gavin Floyd a shiny new contract with major league guarantees in hopes of a bounce-back from an injury-plagued 2013.

Floyd Fighting General Soreness at the Start of Spring
