GAVIN FLOYD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Gavin Floyd is Brett Myers

On January 4, 2013, one day after the Indians signed Nick Swisher to a team record deal, the Indians signed veteran right hander Brett Myers to a one year, $7 million deal. Myers proved to be an absolute disaster, appearing in four games making three starts while giving up 10 home runs in just 21.1 innings. He experienced elbow problems and was eventually placed on the 60-day DL...

Indians Should Still Be In Good Spot Despite Quiet Winter

This has been a quiet off season for the Cleveland Indians. Even quieter than many others in the past. In the Tribe’s two biggest moves, the team added a pair of talented players both coming off seasons marred by injury. If starting pitcher Gavin Floyd and power hitting first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss can each remain healthy, the Indians have upgraded themselves tremendously...

Recent history is poor for teams buying injured starting pitchers

It should come as a surprise to no baseball fan that the Indians went shopping for a bargain in free agency this winter, but it was at least mildly shocking that they came up with Gavin Floyd. Floyd has missed most of the past two seasons with injuries (Tommy John surgery in 2013 and an elbow fracture in 2014), and the Indians are pretty well stocked with starting pitching. There...

Floyd Could be Solid Veteran Presence For Young Rotation

Cleveland Indians management said at the onset of this offseason that one of the goals of the team would be to add a veteran presence to a talented, but mostly unproven pitching staff. The Tribe did just that earlier this week in signing 31-year-old Gavin Floyd to a one-year, $4 million guaranteed deal. The right hander, who will be 32 when the season starts, has quite the resume...

Addition of Floyd gives Indians a lot of options for rotation

The Indians struck again on Tuesday making 31-year old pitcher Gavin Floyd their second significant offseason acquisition.  The deal is $4 million for one year but can escalate up to $6 million if Floyd reaches certain milestones. Those bonuses reportedly kick in once he reaches 19 starts and 160 innings pitched. I recently wrote that the Indians should look at Kris Medlen as an...

Cleveland Indians create depth with Gavin Floyd signing

On the day the White Sox announced Jeff Samardzija, the Indians stole a little of that thunder away by grabbing up former Chicago starting pitcher Gavin Floyd. Signing a starting pitcher had been a top priority of the Indians in this off-season, despite the rotation being the team’s greatest strength in 2014. In addition, by adding Floyd the Indians have essentially cemented their...

Indians sign Gavin Floyd to bolster rotation

The Indians front office knew they had to improve the starting rotation this off-season. To do so, they have signed right-handed pitcher Gavin Floyd to a one-year, $4 million deal. Floyd can receive an additional $6 million if he reaches certain performance bonuses throughout the season if he reaches a certain number of starts and innings pitched in the 2015 season. Floyd, 31,...

Weak Stomachs Beware: Gavin Floyd’s Elbow Looks, Um, Not Good.

The Atlanta Braves have a history of injury problems with their pitching staff. That streak continued today, as starting pitcher Gavin Floyd left his start against the Washington Nationals due to elbow pain. It’s safe to say his injury isn’t minor. Here is a picture of Floyd’s elbow in the dugout following his departure from the game: We're pretty confident Gavin Floyd's elbow...

Gavin Floyd diagnosed with fractured elbow

Gavin Floyd has been diagnosed with a fracture of the olecranon in his right elbow. While it is unclear how Floyd originally suffered the injury, there has been significant swelling around the area which forced him from Thursday’s game against the Washington Nationals. He will be re-evaluated in Atlanta on Friday before any long-term decisions are made but the 31-year-old is surely...
