Florimon (foot) began a rehab assignment Monday with the Phillies' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate, drawing the start in right field and finishing 1-for-4 with a run scored. Florimon played five innings in the field before exiting in what was his first game action at any level since May 29. Now fully recovered from the fractured right foot that has sidelined him for two and a half months, Florimon will likely need at least a week in the minors to get in at-bats and ease back into playing full nine-inning contests. Since Florimon wasn't a core contributor for the Phillies prior to landing on the disabled list, the team could wait until rosters expand in September before activating the utility man.
Florimon (foot) is nearing a return to baseball activities, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports. Florimon has been on the disabled list with a broken foot since late May, and resuming baseball activities in the next few days will be the first real test in his rehab work. The 31-year-old currently has no timetable for his return, but early August seems possible if he can avoid any setbacks.
Florimon (foot) is expected to land on the 60-day disabled list, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. The Phillies will likely make the move by Tuesday, so they can add Enyel De Los Santos to the 40-man roster. Florimon has been situated on the disabled list since May 30 with a broken foot, and the timetable for his return remains murky.
Florimon was diagnosed with a broken right foot after fouling a pitch off himself during Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Matt Gelb of The Athletic Philadelphia reports. He'll be officially placed on the 10-day disabled list later Wednesday. Florimon has largely served as a utility infielder for the Phillies this season, appearing in 33 contests and slashing .263/.323/.491 over 62 plate appearances. It's unclear if Florimon will require surgery to address the fractured foot, so until the Phillies make a decision on that front, an official timetable for his recovery won't be known. In any case, Florimon will likely be in store for an extended absence, though his loss may be mitigated to some degree by the impending return of shortstop J.P. Crawford (forearm), who kicked off a rehab assignment at High-A Clearwater on Tuesday.
Florimon left Tuesday's game against the Dodgers after fouling a pitch off his foot, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Florimon finished the first inning at-bat with a pop out, and was subsequently replaced at third base by Maikel Franco for the bottom of the inning.
