Gavin Floyd has agreed to a one year contract worth around $4 million with the Indians. He underwent Tommy John elbow surgery in 2013, and attempted a comeback last year in Atlanta which lasted only 9 games before re-injuring his elbow.
He did look good in those nine games going 2-2, with a 2.65 ERA over 54 innings.
Incentives can bring Floyd’s salary up to $10 million according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.
If able to remain healthy, Floyd could could prove to be a solid addition to the Indians pitching staff.
