KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Chicago White Sox starter Gavin Floyd needs elbow surgery and will miss the rest of the season.

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.
