Florimon (foot) was activated off the 60-day disabled list Saturday. Florimon suffered a broken foot in late May and has been on a minor-league rehab assignment over the last couple weeks. The 31-year-old should resume his role as a utility player for the Phillies but may not see consistent playing time with the added depth from expanded rosters and recent acquisitions like Justin Bour, Asdrubal Cabrera and Jose Bautista. Florimon had a .263/.323/.491 slash line in 62 plate appearances prior to the injury.
Florimon (foot) shifted his rehab assignment to Double-A Reading last week and has made five appearances for the affiliate, going 5-for-21 with a home run and three walks in those contests. The utility man began his rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League on Aug. 11, so the Phillies will presumably keep him in the minors for the full 20-day window before activating him from the 60-day disabled list Sept. 1 when rosters expand. Florimon probably won't be in line for much more than the occasional pinch-hitting opportunity during the season's final month with the Phillies likely to lean heavily on their regulars as they aim to secure a playoff spot.
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.
