Gavin Christopher Floyd (born January 27, 1983, in Annapolis, Maryland) is a Major League Baseball starting pitcher for the Chicago White Sox. He stands 6' 5" tall, weighs 220 pounds, and throws and bats right-handed.

In 2001, Floyd was selected fourth by the Phillies in the MLB amateur draft, immediately after fellow Mount Saint Joseph High School graduate Mark Teixeira.

In his first professional season (2002), Floyd pitched for the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws of the South Atlantic League (SAL). A highlight of his impressive first year (2.77 ERA, .200 BAA) was pitching the first nine-inning no-hitter in BlueClaws history on July 24 against the Lexington Legends. However, Floyd actually lost the game, 1-0, due to a pair of sixth-inning errors, making him the first SAL pitcher since 1966 to lose a no-hitter.
