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.
Update (8:33 PM ET): Woodruff is headed to the 10-day injured list with a left oblique injury, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff exited Sunday afternoon’s start against the Diamondbacks in the fourth inning due to abdominal discomfort, the team announced. He threw a pitch to leadoff batter Tim Locastro and left the field with a trainer. Junior Guerra relieved him.
In three-plus innings, Woodruff was on the hook for four runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts. He now carries a 3.75 ERA with a 136/29 K/BB ratio in 117 2/3 innings of work.
Woodruff will undergo testing, which should allow the team to provide an update on his status, likely on Monday.
