Season-ending surgery for Floyd
The bad news keeps piling up for the White Sox.
Buried in last place in the AL Central and still stinging from a tough 10-inning loss at Kansas City Sunday, the Sox announced right-handed starting pitcher Gavin Floyd will undergo season-ending surgery tomorrow in New York City to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his elbow.
Dr. David Altchek will repair Floyd’s elbow at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Expected recovery time for Floyd, 30, is approximately 14-19 months.
Floyd was 0-4 with a 5.18 ERA in 5 starts with the White Sox this season.
In his last start, at home against Tampa Bay on April 27, Floyd came out of the game with two outs in the third inning with elbow discomfort.
