CHICAGO (AP) -- White Sox starting pitcher Gavin Floyd has left Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays in the third inning with a flexor muscle strain in his right arm.
Floyd threw a first-pitch strike to Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria with two outs in the third. A trainer and manager Robin Ventura then immediately came out of the dugout to check the right-hander.
Hector Santiago replaced Floyd.
Floyd entered Saturday's game 0-3 with a 4.98 ERA.
Ben Zobrist hit a two-run home run off Floyd in the first inning.
