Gavin Floyd Injury Update: White Sox Pitcher May Head To DL With Tendinitis And Soreness

The Chicago White Sox might be without one of their key starting pitchers for an extended time. According to Scott Merkin of WhiteSox.com, RHP Gavin Floyd -- who has not pitched since July 7 -- is struggling with elbow tendinitis and soreness in his right arm, and he may land on the DL if the injury does not clear up soon:

"I hope not," said Floyd. "If we get this under control and minimize the inflammation, I guess we can hopefully get right back and not miss much.

"From what I'm understanding, we are going to give it a break so it calms down. But I don't know. I haven't heard anything. We are taking one day at a time."

Floyd has a 4.54 ERA and 4.61 FIP through 103 innings in the 2012 season.
