Free-agent SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) is progressing nicely from surgery in May to fix his ulnar collateral ligament and torn flexor tendon in his left elbow, according to his agent, Mike Moye. Floyd is throwing from 180 feet this week and hasn't had any soreness in his arm. His mound program should begin no later than Dec. 7 and will likely go for two to three months. Floyd should be ready for the start of next season, barring any setbacks.

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.

Chicago White Sox SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) tentatively plans to undergo Tommy John surgery on his torn elbow ligament.
Fantasy Tip: Floyd will be finished for the rest of this season and at least the first month or so of next season. This means that Hector Santiago will enter the rotation on a full-time basis. He filled in for Jake Peavy (back spasms) last night against the Rangers. Santiago should be owned in all AL leagues at this point, and now that he'll be a fixture in the rotation, deep mixed leaguers should take a look, too.

Chicago White Sox SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) received a second opinion that confirmed a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow. He also has an unstable ulnar collateral ligament. He'll receive a third opinion, but surgery is looming.
Fantasy Tip: Surgery on the flexor tendon will likely put him out the rest of the season. If he needs Tommy John surgery, he may miss a chunk on next season as well. You can drop him in mixed leagues and start considering it in AL-only leagues.
