Cleveland Indians SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) has looked "really good" and the ball is coming out of his hand "really well," according to pitching coach Mickey Callaway. Manager Terry Francona said Floyd will be eased along with an extra side day, a B game or a simulated game during spring training, and they plan to keep an eye on Floyd.
Fantasy Tip: Floyd has missed significant time -- just 14 starts -- over the past two seasons, and when healthy, he was only a fringe fantasy contributor. However, he did flash a respectable line with the Braves last season sporting a 2.65 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP and 45 strikeouts over 54.3 innings through nine starts. Still, Floyd is currently best left for AL-only formats, where he is a low-end starter. There is also the chance he doesn't earn a spot in the rotation, so check back for updates on his progress through spring training.
