The White Sox have placed right-hander Gavin Floyd on the fifteen-day disabled list with a right elbow flexor strain, reports Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com:

To take Floyd’s spot on their roster, the White Sox recalled right-hander Dylan Axelrod.

Floyd has had an up-and-down 2012 campaign. After starting off the season well enough, he experienced a tough May which saw him surrender twenty-three runs in twenty nine and one-third innings. He pitched better in June and July, but again faced issues in August.

On the season, Floyd has maintained an ERA of 4.55 with 7.4 SO/9 and 3.4 BB/9.

This marks the second time this season Floyd will miss time with an elbow injury, as he was sidelined in July due to tendinitis. The 29-year-old had to exit his last start on Sunday against the Seattle Mariners because of elbow discomfort that was later diagnosed as the flexor strain.

Axelrod has appeared in ten games, including six starts, for the White Sox this season, posting an ERA of 5.63. He will start tonight’s game, allowing right-hander Jake Peavy to be pushed back to Friday, as he’s dealing with an eye injury.
