Gavin Floyd Optimistic Following Bullpen Session

Chicago White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd is confident that he could start as soon as next week according to a report from Bruce Levine of ESPNChicago.com.

Floyd has been on the disabled list with soreness in his right elbow since Aug. 27, but he threw a 55-pitch bullpen session on Thursday and hopes to throw a similar session on Sunday.

Floyd was optimistic when talking to Levine, saying he felt better than he thought he would,

"It felt good. I threw some sliders, change-ups, (and) fastballs. It was good, better than I expected, so we will have one more bullpen Sunday. We will throw curveballs (and) that will be the final test as to how it feels."

White Sox manager Robin Ventura doesn't know when Floyd will start again, but wants to make sure Floyd is healthy before making a decision,

"He has to feel right in order to (start). Soon as he is fit to (pitch) then we will see where he best fits in."
