Indians | Gavin Floyd close to returning

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:04:33 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 1, but he will be used out of the bullpen, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd has not pitched at the major league level this season and as long as he is being used out of the bullpen, he has no value in FantasyScore.

Indians | Gavin Floyd set for surgery

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 10:15:28 -0700

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough break for a pitcher that was primed for another solid season in 2015 as a fantasy baseball sleeper. Make sure to cross him off your sleeper cheat sheets in deep mixed leagues.

Indians | Gavin Floyd has fractured elbow

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 10:27:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) was diagnosed with a fractured olecranon bone in his right elbow, which was the same injury he had last year that required surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd was a nice sleeper candidate for 2015 after the strides he had made in 2014 before his elbow injury. You can forget about him now in all leagues.

Indians | Gavin Floyd has stress fracture

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 10:15:37 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) suffered a stress fracture in his right elbow, and he'll be out for the foreseeable future.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd was entering the 2015 season with the Tribe as a sleeper candidate. However, a second straight year of dealing with a stress fracture in his right elbow will put that on hold. You can now forget about Floyd as a deep sleeper in deep mixed leagues.

Indians | Gavin Floyd to have MRI

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 09:54:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) is having an MRI exam done on his right elbow Monday, March 9, after he was held out of his Cactus League debut Sunday, March 8.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd is one of our sleeper candidates after his move to Cleveland in the offseason. The elbow concerns are frustrating, though, especially after he suffered a fractured elbow last year. If healthy, Floyd's increased control and ground-ball skills set him up to succeed again in 2015 as a late-round gamble in deep mixed leagues.

Indians | General soreness for Gavin Floyd

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 10:44:20 -0800

Cleveland Indians SP Gavin Floyd will have his spring debut Sunday, March 8, pushed back due to "general soreness," according to manager Terry Francona. Floyd has had surgery on his right elbow twice in the last two years, including Tommy John surgery in 2013. The Indians are electing to be cautious with Floyd in camp. Floyd has impressed the team this spring, and the Indians said when they signed him that he'd be a part of the starting rotation to start the year if he was healthy. There will be no change in his throwing program.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd was pitching great for the Atlanta Braves last year before he fractured his elbow. He also showed attractive control and ground-ball rates while striking out 7.5 hitters per nine innings last year. That, along with the pitcher-friendly move to Cleveland, makes Floyd an interesting sleeper in really deep mixed leagues in 2015, assuming he's healthy.

Indians | Tribe being cautious with Gavin Floyd

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 14:49:23 -0800

Cleveland Indians SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) is having his innings monitored this spring after fracturing his right elbow in 2014. The Indians will be cautious with him in camp, and they'll delay his first Cactus League start. Floyd was initially scheduled to debut Sunday, March 8, but he'll be pushed back a few days. He might work in a simulated game on the minor league side before making his spring debut, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd was looking good with the Atlanta Braves before his injury last year after returning from Tommy John surgery. The move to Cleveland should be attractive for fantasy owners as a buy-low deep sleeper candidate in deeper mixed leagues.

Indians | Gavin Floyd looking sharp

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 15:19:39 -0800

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.
