In the conference call post the official signing of Floyd, Cleveland’s general manager Chris Antonetti stated that they are not worried about the pitcher’s previously injured elbow and that he is now healthy.

Floyd’s elbow is fine. Went through an extensive physical. The fracture is well healed & we expect him for full activity in Spring Training. — Cleveland Indians (@Indians) December 16, 2014
