The Chicago White Sox have placed right-hander Gavin Floyd on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis in his right elbow, the team has announced:

In a corresponding roster move, the White Sox have activated right-hander Philip Humber from the DL.

Floyd last appeared for the White Sox on July 7, logging 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the Toronto Blue Jays. On the season, the 29-year-old has maintained an ERA and WHIP of 4.54 and 1.282 with 8.0 SO/9 and 2.7 BB/9 over his 17 starts spanning 103 innings.

Humber, who was also experiencing elbow issues, has been out since the middle of June. Before rejoining the White Sox, the 29-year-old logged three minor league rehab starts, allowing five runs over his 12 1/3 innings pitched.

Prior to his injury, Humber has posted an ERA and WHIP of 6.01 and 1.485 with 8.4 SO/9 and 4.1 BB/9 over his 12 starts.
