Floyd To Undergo Season-Ending Surgery

(CBS) As expected, White Sox right-handed pitcher Gavin Floyd will undergo season-ending surgery to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his right elbow.

The surgery, which has an expected recovery time of 14-19 months, will take place Tuesday in New York.

Floyd will be an unrestricted free agent following the 2013 season.

The 30-year-old Floyd went 0-4 with a 5.18 ERA in five starts with the White Sox this season.

He left his last start on April 27 against the Rays after 2 2/3 innings and was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 28.
