ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have activated right-hander Gavin Floyd from the disabled list and optioned left-handed reliever Ian Thomas to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Floyd signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Braves in December after his 2013 season with the White Sox was shorted by an elbow injury. He had surgery last May to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his right elbow.

The Braves did not immediately announce Floyd's role.

The 31-year-old pitcher has a 70-70 career record with Philadelphia and the White Sox. His best season came in 2008, when he was 17-8 with a 3.84 ERA with Chicago. He hasn't won more than 12 games or had an ERA under 4.00 since 2008.

Thomas was 1-1 with a 4.26 ERA in 10 games.
