2017 Dodgers review: Dylan Floro

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Chicago Cubs Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers were one of three organizations for Dylan Floro in the calendar year of 2017.

Coming

Floro was drafted by the Rays out of Cal State Fullerton in 2012 when Andrew Friedman was running the show in Tampa Bay. Floro got his first major league stint in 2016 with the Rays, then was claimed off waivers by the Cubs in January.

He spent time between the majors and minors with Chicago, including pitching three games in relief for the Cubs. Floro was designated for assignment on July 31 to make room on the 40-man roster when Chicago acquired Alex Avila and Justin Wilson at the trade deadline.

Four days later the Dodgers claimed Floro off waivers and optioned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City. In eight games in relief with OKC, the right-hander allowed eight runs on 18 hits in 11⅓ innings, with 12 strikeouts and three walks.

Going

Floro was designated for assignment on Aug. 18 to make room on the 40-man roster for the newly acquired Curtis Granderson.

Four days later Floro was sent outright to the minors and remained with Oklahoma City for the rest of the season.

2017 particulars

Age: 26

Stats: 5.56 ERA in 8 games, 12 K, 3 BB in 11⅓ IP for Triple-A OKC

Salary: n/a

Game of the year

Floro pitched two scoreless innings on Aug. 10 at Salt Lake (Angels), striking out four while allowing only one single.

Roster status

As someone who was sent outright to the minors more than once — the Cubs outrighted him to Iowa in February — Floro had the right to elect free agency at the end of the season, which he did.
