Gavin Floyd Injury: White Sox Starter Throws Off Mound

Gavin Floyd is hoping to return to the White Sox soon, and took his first steps by throwing off a mound on Monday.

According to ESPN Chicago's Scott Powers, Floyd threw 20 pitches off the mound and also did some long tossing.

Afterward, Floyd-- who is eligible to come back in a week-- seemed optimistic and eager to return to his team. He has been out since Aug. 27 with a right elbow flexor strain. He also missed time in July due to tendonitis in the same elbow.

So far this season, Gavin Floyd has nine wins and a 4.55 ERA in 24 starts.

The tall righty has been a full-time member of the White Sox rotation since 2008, and was a first round pick by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2001. This will be the first season since 2007 in which Floyd does not start at least 30 games for the White Sox.
