HOUSTON -- Other than knowing Gavin Floyd will not pitch again this season, the Braves have not yet learned much about the season-ending elbow surgery the veteran right-handed pitcher underwent on Wednesday afternoon.

Floyd underwent the surgery to repair the fractured olecranon he suffered in his right elbow during a June 19 start against the Nationals. Dr. David Altchek performed this procedure a little more than 13 months after performing Tommy John surgery on Floyd.

When meeting with reporters on Wednesday, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Altchek had to insert screws into Floyd's elbow.

Altchek informed the Braves that he wants to see how the elbow heals initially before setting any potential timetable for his return.

Floyd will be a free agent at the end of this season. The one-year deal he signed with the Braves in December ended up being worth approximately $4.75 million.
