Gavin Floyd Progressing But Won't Be Ready For Series Vs. Detroit Tigers

The Chicago White Sox open a four-game series with the Detroit Tigers on Monday in a matchup that could determine the eventual AL Central champion, but Chicago won't have the services of starting pitcher Gavin Floyd in time to face the Tigers.

Floyd has been on the disabled list since Aug. 27 with a right elbow strain, but he threw a bullpen session on Thursday that went well, according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com, and he could return to the rotation soon.

"Very minimal soreness, ache. So it was good, better than I expected. We have one more bullpen Sunday to throw curveballs and I think that will be the final test as to how it feels and see how it reacts when I throw."

Floyd is 9-9 with a 4.55 ERA in 24 starts this season.
