Floro pitched two-thirds of an inning Friday, striking out one without allowing a baserunner in a 5-4 loss to Colorado.

Floro has become one of manager Dave Roberts' more reliable right-handed relievers, posting a 1.93 ERA and 10.3 K/9 in 14 innings since coming over from Cincinnati on July 4. The 27-year-old could see his role elevated further following Kenley Jansen's placement on the disabled list with an irregular heartbeat. Scott Alexander is expected to lead a closing committee, but Floro has certainly made a case to be considered as a late-inning option if he is called upon.
