Floro (2-4) was tagged with the loss in relief Monday against the Cardinals after allowing two runs on two hits and two walks while fanning one across one inning.
The Marlins limited the Cardinals to just two runs and eight hits through the first seven innings, but Floro melted down in the eighth and gave up the final two runs of the contest following an RBI double from Tyler O'Neill and an RBI groundout from Paul DeJong. Floro ended a streak of four straight scoreless appearances with this poor outing, but he still owns a decent 3.86 ERA on 28 innings this season.
Floro worked a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his second save of the season in a 4-2 win over Atlanta.
With Yimi Garcia having pitched each of the last two days, Floro received the call in a save situation and got the job done. The 30-year-old has only been scored upon in three of 30 appearances this season, although he got tagged for a total of 10 runs in those other three games, and he sports a 3.33 ERA and 23:10 K:BB through 27 innings on the year with two wins and eight holds in addition to his saves.
Floro picked up the save by retiring the final batter of Monday's win over the Phillies.
The Marlins went into the top of the ninth inning with a seven-run lead, but after the Phillies plated four runs on a homer and a pair of doubles, Floro was deployed to record the final out. He induced a groundball to shortstop to slam the door. It was unusual to see Miami call upon Floro instead of Yimi Garcia in a save situation, especially since Garcia wasn't needed Sunday, but it's unlikely that Floro sees regular save chances going forward.
Floro (2-2) took the loss Tuesday against the Phillies after allowing five runs on four hits and a walk across one-third of an inning.
Floro entered the game in the eighth inning and kicked things off by striking out Bryce Harper; however, he subsequently struggled, allowing five straight batters to reach base and giving up two runs before exiting with the bases loaded. Floro ended a streak of 12 straight scoreless appearances with this woeful performance.
Floro (2-1) worked a perfect seventh inning Thursday to pick up the win over the Diamondbacks.
He tossed an efficient 11 pitches (eight strikes) before handing the ball off to Anthony Bass for the eighth inning. Floro has only been scored upon once in 16 appearances to begin the season, leading to a 1.23 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 15:4 K:BB through 14.2 innings, and the right-hander has four holds in addition to his wins.
Floro (0-1) allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out one across a third of an inning Thursday against Atlanta, blowing the save and taking the loss.
Floro was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning but faltered. He struggled with his control, with his second walk of the frame forcing in the tying run. Floro is considered an option for to pick up saves after Anthony Bass struggled in the role early this season, and he had not allowed an earned run across 6.1 innings while accruing an impressive 8:1 K:BB prior to Thursday's outing. However, Yimi Garcia -- who was likely unavailable to pitch in this game -- has the club's only two saves of the season to this point.
Floro is one of the top options for Miami's next save chance, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
It sounds like Anthony Bass won't be getting the next save chance after blowing his first two chances of the season. Mish also mentions Yimi Garcia as another top option to get save chances going forward. General manager Kim Ng orchestrated the trade to get Floro from the Dodgers this past offseason. He has not allowed a run while striking out four over 3.1 innings this season.
Floro has yet to give an earned run in 3.1 innings over four appearances this season, recording a 4:1 K:BB and one hold.
The right-hander has arguably been Miami's best reliever through the first week of the year. Floro's effectiveness stands in stark contrast to the struggles of closer Anthony Bass, and while manager Don Mattingly doesn't seem inclined to make a change in the ninth inning just yet, Floro is positioning himself to be in the saves mix if Bass does lose the job. Yimi Garcia (2.25 ERA, 3:2 K:BB in 4.0 IP) has been the Marlins' primary eighth-inning arm, however, and could be ahead of Floro in the pecking order for closer duties.
Floro is expected to be the Marlins' primary seventh-inning pitcher to begin the season, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.
Manager Don Mattingly prefers set roles for his high-leverage crew, and Floro will apparently be the bridge to Yimi Garcia and Anthony Bass in the eighth and ninth innings, respectively. Floro got a late start to his spring but has posted a 3:1 K:BB in 3.2 Grapefruit League innings, and his 2.59 ERA and 1.11 WHIP for the Dodgers in 2020 suggest he can be effective, if not exactly dominant, for Miami.
Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Floro (undisclosed) would be available out of the bullpen for Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Floro looks poised to make his spring debut after the Marlins delayed his entry into the pitching schedule while he dealt with some soreness earlier in camp. After mostly working in middle innings as a member of a deep Dodgers bullpen in 2020, Floro is expected to pitch in more high-leverage situations for a Marlins squad lacking in established relief options. He could even factor into the mix for saves, though Anthony Bass is probably the most likely candidate to open the season as the Marlins' primary closer.
Floro has been dealing with soreness and has yet to pitch in a Grapefruit League game, although he has thrown live batting practice sessions, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports. "Dylan had just a little bit of soreness, and we wanted to make sure we got him back on track, and he is," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said last week.
Acquired from the Dodgers in the offseason, Floro's name has come up in the closer discussion for Miami, but he hasn't yet gotten a chance to show his new team what he can do on a mound. There's still enough time for the right-hander to get ready for Opening Day, but his role in the bullpen remains undetermined.
Floro was mentioned by manager Don Mattingly on Monday as someone he thought could handle save opportunities, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
Anthony Bass and Yimi Garcia are thought to be the favorites for late-inning work in the Miami bullpen, but Floro might pitch his way into the picture with a strong spring. The right-hander is still looking for his first career save, but he's coming off a solid 2020 campaign with the Dodgers in which he posted a 2.59 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 24.1 innings.
Floro was traded from the Dodgers to the Marlins on Friday in exchange for Alex Vesia and an undisclosed prospect, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Floro doesn't have the strikeout stuff of a bullpen ace, striking out just 20.2 percent of opposing batters over the course of his five-year career, but he's had success nonetheless, posting a 3.33 ERA for his career and a 2.59 ERA in 24.1 innings last season. His 53.7 percent groundball rate has helped him keep runs off the board despite a modest amount of whiffs. That's typically a profile better suited for middle relief than high-leverage work, but the Marlins' bullpen isn't exactly full of big names, so it's entirely possible he picks up his first career save this season.
Floro and the Dodgers agreed to a one-year deal worth $975,000 dollars to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Floro was a workhorse out of the bullpen for the Dodgers during the 2020 season, working 24.1 innings in 25 appearances. He was quite effective as well, posting a 2.59 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with 19 strikeouts. Floro isn't likely to factor into the saves picture for the team.
The Dodgers didn't include Floro on their 28-man roster for the wild-card series with the Brewers that begins Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Los Angeles is likely banking on Walker Buehler and Clayton Kershaw to work deep into their starts in the first two games of the series, lessening the need to keep Floro on the roster as a low-leverage reliever. Floro still earned a spot on the Dodgers' taxi squad, so he could be an option to join the roster later in the postseason.
Floro could see fewer late-inning opportunities in 2020, Rowan Kavner of Dodger Insider reports.
Floro logged 22 innings of work in the eighth frame or later last season, accounting for nearly half of his 46.2-inning total. He was only mildly effective in those situations, however, yielding 10 earned runs (for a 4.02 ERA) and compiling an 18:9 K:BB. With Kenley Jansen locked in as the team's closer, Pedro Baez emerging as a reliable setup man and Blake Treinen brought in for high-leverage work, Floro's opportunities are likely to come primarily in middle relief when the 2020 campaign gets underway.
Floro (chest) was activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday.
Floro went down with a left intercostal strain Aug. 21, but he'll rejoin the Dodgers after a shot stint on the IL. The 28-year-old has a 3.89 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB over 37 innings this season.
Floro (chest) will be activated from the injured list Sunday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Floro made a rehab appearance with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday, tossing eight pitches in one perfect inning. He'll return to the big club on Sunday to fill a spot in the bullpen. Floro is 4-3 with a 3.89 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 39 appearances with the Dodgers this season.
Floro (chest) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Monday and will toss one inning for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Floro landed on the 10-day injured list with a left intercostal strain Aug. 21. News of the bullpen session and upcoming rehab outing suggests that he should be ready to rejoin the Dodgers when eligible Saturday, though the transaction may be put on hold until rosters expand the following day. Floro has compiled a 3.89 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 37 innings with the Dodgers this season.
Floro was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left intercostal strain, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Floro was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday and apparently suffered the injury while firing a scoreless frame in his first game back in the majors. Casey Sadler rejoins the team in a corresponding move as added bullpen depth.
