Sad news for Gavin Floyd.
He came back from Tommy John elbow surgery to pitch well for the Braves last season only to fracture his elbow. Then he came back from a fractured elbow to sign a one-year, $4 million deal with the Indians this year.
And now he’s been diagnosed with a stress fracture in the same elbow. Now word yet on what the plan is for Floyd, but surgery is said to be an option and whatever the case it’s not good.
Danny Salazar and T.J. House now both look likely to be in the Indians’ rotation.
A doubleheader between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers this week is being postponed to allow more time for additional COVID-19 testing.
MLB opted to postpone Thursday’s doubleheader to continue additional testing while players and staff are quarantined before the team returns to play. More details about the Cardinals’ resumption of play will be announced later this week.
The Cardinals had a series against Pittsburgh set to start on Monday postponed after a weekend series against the Cubs was scrapped due to three positive coronavirus tests.
St. Louis had two more players and a staff member test positive for the virus on Friday and have had eight positive players overall, including star catcher Yadier Molina.
There have now been 29 games postponed by Major League Baseball because of coronavirus concerns. The Cardinals have not played since July 30 and have had 15 games scrapped.
Miami and Philadelphia each had seven games postponed earlier and have returned to the field since the disruptions.
