Indians sign Gavin Floyd

12 Comments

Gavin Floyd will attempt another comeback, this time in Cleveland after agreeing to a one-year deal with the Indians.

Floyd’s comeback from Tommy John elbow surgery lasted just nine starts this year when he suffered a fractured elbow and missed the remainder of the season.

He resumed throwing last month and is expected to be fully healthy for spring training, in which case Floyd could potentially be a cheap rotation option for the Indians. He looked good before being shut down, posting a 2.65 ERA and 45/13 K/BB ratio in 54 innings for Atlanta.

UPDATE: Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports it’s a $4 million deal with another $6 million in potential incentives
