Cleveland Indians righthander Gavin Floyd is out indefinitely after reinjuring the stress fracture in his elbow that limited him to two starts last season.
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.
