The Indians said they are exploring treatment options, which could include surgery. A timetable for Floyd's return depends on the treatment.
[daily_cut.mlb]"It's pretty safe to say he's going to miss significant time," Indians manager Terry Francona said, according to August Fagerstrom of MLB.com.
Floyd, 32, signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Indians as a free agent this winter. He spent last season with the Atlanta Braves before sustaining the initial stress fracture on June 19. He underwent season-ending surgery on June 25 to stabilize the fracture of the olecranon, a bone behind the elbow.
Over 208 career games (196 starts), Floyd is 72-72 with a 4.40 ERA, 948 strikeouts and 403 walks.
