MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian reports that the Indians will activate pitcher Gavin Floyd from the disabled list on Tuesday. They plan to use him out of the bullpen.
Floyd, 32, had surgery in June last year to repair a fractured olecranon in his right elbow. He re-injured it in February, requiring another surgical procedure. The right-hander made nine starts for the Braves last season prior to his injury, posting a 2.65 ERA with a 45/13 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings.
The Indians took a gamble, hoping he could be healthy and productive, signing him to a one-year, $4 million deal in December.
