The Chicago White Sox placed pitcher Gavin Floyd on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Aug. 27 with a right elbow flexor strain.

The 29-year-old Floyd left his last start on Aug. 26 after two innings with elbow soreness. Floyd missed time in July due to tendinitis in his right elbow.

Floyd is 9-9 with a 4.55 earned run average in 24 starts this season for the White Sox.

In a corresponding move, Chicago recalled pitcher Dylan Axelrod from Triple-A Charlotte. Axelrod has appeared in 10 games -- including six starts -- with the White Sox this season and has posted a 1-2 record with a 5.63 ERA.
