The Chicago White Sox have activated right-hander Gavin Floyd from the fifteen day disabled list. Floyd is scheduled to start tonight’s contest against Chicago’s American League Central rival, the Detroit Tigers:
Floyd last appeared for the White Sox on August 26, when he exited his start against the Seattle Mariners after only two innings of work. The 29-year-old was later diagnosed with a flexor strain in his right elbow.
Floyd has had an up-and-down season for the White Sox. After getting off to a decent start, he surrendered twenty-three runs in twenty-nine and one-third innings in May. He pitched well in June and July but struggled once again in August.
Despite his inconsistent campaign, the White Sox figure to welcome Floyd back as another veteran contributor as they attempt to hold off the Tigers.
