Gavin Floyd to have MRI on elbow

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Indians starting pitcher Gavin Floyd will undergo an MRI on his troublesome right elbow.

Manager Terry Francona said that Floyd, who underwent reconstructive elbow surgery in 2013 and made just nine starts for Atlanta last season before fracturing his elbow, will have the imaging exam on Monday, and the team hopes to have results Tuesday.

Francona said Floyd has been "feeling some things" in his elbow, and the Indians want to make sure he's sound before he pitches again. Floyd, 32, had his spring debut postponed Sunday because of general soreness.

The Indians signed Floyd in December with the idea he would take a job in their starting rotation. He's 72-72 with a 4.40 ERA in eight major league seasons.

Floyd won at least 10 games in each season from 2007 to 2013 for the Chicago White Sox. He was 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA in his brief stint with the Braves.
