    News

    Floyd (shoulder) was released by the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

    Impact

    Floyd, who attended spring training as a non-roster invitee, was unable to pitch in Grapefruit League play while experiencing lingering pain in his strained shoulder, an injury that ended his 2016 campaign prematurely. It appears the veteran right-hander isn't close to pitching, so the Blue Jays decided to cut their losses. The 34-year-old will likely look to land a minor-league deal with the Blue Jays or another organization once he's sufficiently healthy.
