Floro (shoulder) has been activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday's game against Arizona, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Floro is ready for his 2022 regular-season debut after missing time with right shoulder tendinitis. He should immediately step into a high-leverage role within Miami's bullpen after cruising to a 2.81 ERA with 62 strikeouts and 15 saves a year ago.
Floro (shoulder) is scheduled to continue his rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Jacksonville, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Floro has been ramping up his activity and recently threw on consecutive days. Thursday's outing could be his final test prior to joining the Marlins for his season debut. It's unclear whether Floro will immediately regain the closer role from Anthony Bender, though he projects for a high-leverage role regardless.
Floro (shoulder) gave up a hit and struck out one in one-third of an inning for Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday. After tossing a scoreless inning for the Jumbo Shrimp on Saturday, being able to pitch on back-to-back days was likely the final hurdle for Floro to clear on his rehab assignment. Expect the right-hander to rejoin the Marlins' bullpen in the next day or two ahead of his season debut, although in his absence, Anthony Bender may have tightened his hold on the closer job by reeling off four straight saves over the last week.
Floro (shoulder) threw 23 pitches in his rehab appearance with Low-A Jupiter on Saturday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. This was Floro's first rehab appearance. He retired the first two batters he faced prior to giving up a walk and an RBI double. Most importantly, there was no report of a setback, so Floro remains in line to make his season debut in the coming days. It's unclear whether he will serve as the Marlins' closer, though he should have a high-leverage role.
Floro (shoulder) is expected to begin his rehab assignment at Low-A Jupiter on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Floro joined the Hammerheads on Friday but won't actually start pitching until Saturday. His return is being watched closely in light of Anthony Bender blowing a save Wednesday and raising his ERA to 8.31 over 4.1 innings.
