Braves place RHP Floyd on DL with broken elbow

WASHINGTON (AP) -

 

The Atlanta Braves have placed Gavin Floyd on the 15-day disabled list after the right-hander broke a bone in his elbow.

The Braves made the move Friday. The team also recalled left-hander Ryan Buchter from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Floyd broke the olecranon - the bony tip of the ulna that sticks out behind the elbow - as he made the first pitch of the seventh inning in Thursday night's 3-0 win over the Washington Nationals.

Floyd returned to Atlanta on Friday to be examined by team doctors.
