The team stated Monday that right-hander Gavin Floyd will be out for at least 14 months after elbow surgery to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and torn flexor muscle on Tuesday in New York; his season is done and a little of next season also.

”It’s tough, being in that position, seeing one of your buddies go through that,” White Sox starter Chris Sale said. ”But it’s part of the game. Things happen for a reason.”

”I don’t think this would have happened to him if he couldn’t handle it or become better from it,” Sale said. ”I think he will. We’ve got to be there for him. He’s an outstanding pitcher and an even better person. He will prevail from this and become better.”

The 30-year-old Floyd was 0-4 with a 5.18 ERA in five starts for Chicago this season before going on the disabled list April 28 with what was initially diagnosed as a flexor muscle strain.

Floyd has pitched for the ChiSox and Phillies for 10 seasons where he has accumulated a 70-70 record and a 4.48 ERA.  Gavin Floyd
