Gavin Floyd Leaves Braves-Nats Game With A Very Gross Elbow Injury

The Braves pitcher left tonight's game against the Nationals in the seventh inning with an injury to his pitching elbow. The concerning part: Floyd had Tommy John surgery on that same elbow last year.

The official report from the Braves' Twitter account is "posterior swelling of his right elbow." Floyd had X-rays taken and saw the Nationals' doctor. There will likely be more to this.
