Floyd progressing a month after elbow surgery

Floyd progressing a month after elbow surgery

ATLANTA -- Gavin Floyd was encouraged to see that his healing process is going well after undergoing surgery to repair the fractured olecranon in his right elbow on June 25. He met with Dr. David Altchek, who performed the surgery, on Thursday.

"I saw some good progress," Floyd said. "I get to see him in another four weeks and kind of take another X-ray and see how it's doing then, too. So it was nice to see that everything's healing as expected."

"It's healing fine. He's going to be fine," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez added. "Still no baseball activity. He'll go back in four weeks and then re-evaluate again."

Floyd sustained the fracture on June 19 against the Nationals, only nine starts removed from his return to the mound after undergoing Tommy John surgery performed by Altchek in May 2013. Floyd went 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA in nine starts this season.
