Indians pitcher Gavin Floyd may need elbow surgery again

Indians right-hander Gavin Floyd may need surgery on his pitching right elbow.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Cleveland Indians right-hander Gavin Floyd has reinjured his pitching right elbow and may need surgery.

The 32-year-old was 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA for Atlanta last season and didn't pitch after June 19. He had surgery six days later to repair a stress fracture of the olecranon, a bone behind the elbow.

Cleveland signed the former White Sox pitcher as a free agent on Dec. 16 to a contract guaranteeing $4 million. The Indians said in a statement Tuesday "he is out for the foreseeable future" and surgery is an option.
