The team said Monday that Floyd will be out for 14-19 months -- also putting next season in jeopardy. The right-hander will have the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle repaired Tuesday in New York.

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 is 70-70 with a 4.48 ERA in 10 major-league seasons with the White Sox and Phillies.

The White Sox said righty Jake Peavy, who was scratched from two starts because of back spasms, is scheduled to start Wednesday night in New York against the Mets.
