Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

White Sox | Gavin Floyd done for the year

Chicago White Sox SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) will undergo season-ending surgery to fix a tear in the flexor muscle in his right elbow Tuesday, May 7. Floyd will also have the ulnar collateral ligament repaired during surgery, and he's expected to miss anywhere from 14 to 19 months.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd can be dropped in all formats, obviously. He's likely pitched his last game in a White Sox uniform, too. Hector Santiago should now be a fixture in the rotation until John Danks (shoulder) returns later this month or in early June. Jake Peavy (back) could also land on the disabled list, so there is plenty of opportunity for Santiago to stick in the rotation even longer. He should be owned even deep mixed leagues.
