The Atlanta Braves placed SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right elbow Friday, June 20, and recalled P Ryan Buchter from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Although the Braves haven't released a timetable for Floyd's return, they expect him to be back this season. However, it'll likely be an extended absence. This injury bodes well for the return of Alex Wood to the rotation. Look to jump ahead of the curve and add Wood in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

David O'Brien, of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, believes the Atlanta Braves will look to trade for at least one relief pitcher in the coming weeks before the trade deadline. Atlanta is reluctant to trade a starting pitcher for a reliever, though, but SPs Aaron Harang or Gavin Floyd may be candidates to be shipped out. Floyd is more likely to be moved because of the way Harang has pitched this year. Also, Floyd has incentives that could raise his deal by $3 or $4 million.
