Floro (2-1) earned the win Wednesday against the Giants, firing two perfect innings during which he recorded one strikeout.
Floro replaced Rich Hill in the second inning after he exited early with left forearm discomfort. The 28-year-old kept the Giants at bay while getting plenty of run support from his hot-hitting offense. Through 27 appearances this season, Floro owns a 2.77 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20:4 K:BB.
Floro was credited with a hold in the Dodgers' 7-3 win over the Rays on Tuesday, giving up one hit over 1.1 innings without allowing a baserunner. He didn't record a walk or a strikeout.
Floro continues to be a lights-out performer in the Dodgers' bullpen, as this latest scoreless outing lowered his ERA to a microscopic 0.44 to go along with a 0.79 WHIP in 20.1 innings. He also sports an excellent 15:2 K:BB. While he doesn't figure to see many save opportunities due to the presence of Kenley Jansen, he's establishing himself as arguably the best option in the setup corps.
Floro is dealing with a sore shoulder, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Floro got hit in the shoulder during batting practice earlier in the week, which explains why he wasn't used during the team's most recent series against the Cubs. The right-hander downplayed the severity of the issue, stating that he's confident he'll be available for Friday's series opener against the Pirates.
Floro hasn't given up a run in any of his eight appearances so far this season, yielding seven hits with five strikeouts and no walks over 8.1 innings.
The Dodgers' bullpen has had its fair share of struggles, but Floro has stood out as an exception, as he's posted a 0.84 WHIP over his eight games. His strong pitching extends back to last season following his acquisition via trade from the Reds, as Floro has a 1.25 ERA over 36 innings as a Dodger. With Joe Kelly struggling so far in the role as the setup man for closer Kenley Jansen, Floro is making a strong case for a look in that role.
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.
Floro was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to the majors Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Floro received the promotion after Ross Stripling (toe) was moved to the 10-day disabled list. Floro has made 31 appearances in the big leagues for both the Reds and Dodgers in 2018, and he's posted a 2.89 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 35 strikeouts over 43.2 innings out of the bullpen.
Floro was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Floro was cast off the active roster in order to make room for Walker Buehler ahead of his start Wednesday. Since coming over to the Dodgers on July 4, Floro has logged a 3.68 ERA and 0.82 WHIP with eight strikeouts across 7.1 innings of relief. Look for him to return to the big leagues in the near future once the club requires a fresh bullpen arm.
Floro was traded from the Reds to the Dodgers on Wednesday along with minor-league pitcher Zach Neal and international signing bonus pool space in exchange for minor-league pitchers James Marinan and Aneurys Zabala.
Floro had been a capable performer for the Reds in long relief this season, posting a 2.72 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 36.1 innings. A 6.7 K/9 limits Floro's fantasy appeal even as a ratio stabilizer in NL-only or deeper mixed formats, but his 56.8 percent groundball rate should at least help him enjoy decent results out of the bullpen as he heads to Los Angeles. Floro is scheduled to arrive in California over the weekend and should be formally added to the 25-man roster ahead of Friday's series opener against the Angels, according to Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register.
Floro has pitched well as a long reliever for the Reds since his promotion from Triple-A Louisville, posting a 1.80 ERA over 20 innings, along with an 18:5 K:BB ratio.
Floro has managed to avoid the long ball so far, and he also has a 84.6 percent strand rate, which likely means that this performance level is unsustainable. But he's at least provided some stability in a difficult role, as his workload is pretty scattershot. Often his appearances are four-to-five days apart.
Floro's contract was purchased from Triple-A Louisville on Friday, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Floro hasn't had a lot of success in the big leagues in his career (5.11 ERA, 1.82 WHIP in 24.2 innings pitched), but he has yet to allow a run in the minors this season. As such, he'll head to the big leagues to provide another fresh arm in middle relief. To make room for him on the roster, Tanner Rainey was optioned to Triple-A and Ariel Hernandez was designated for assignment.
Floro agreed to a minor-league deal with the Reds on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
Floro will remain in the NL Central after appearing in three games with the Cubs in 2017. During that time, he posted an unsightly 6.52 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over 9.2 innings of relief. The 27-year-old spent most of the past season at the Triple-A level, which is where he will likely begin the 2018 campaign within the Reds' system.
Floro has decided to hit the free-agent market, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.
Floro was outrighted off the 40-man roster in late August and has decided to take his services to free agency rather than return to the Dodgers' minor-league system. He will now look to find himself a better situation heading into 2018 with a different organization.
The Dodgers outrighted Floro to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.
Floro was designated for assignment Aug. 19 following the Dodgers' acquisition of Curtis Granderson. After going unclaimed off waivers, Floro will stick around in the organization as bullpen depth.
Floro was designated for assignment Friday.
The Dodgers needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Curtis Granderson, who was acquired from the Mets for a player to be named later. Floro, who has only been in the Dodgers' organization for a couple weeks, has compiled a 4.42 ERA and 1.38 WHIP across 55 innings in the minors this season, primarily in the Cubs' organization.
Floro was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on Friday, JP Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.
Floro was claimed and then optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City after being designated for assignment by the Cubs on Monday. He's spent most of the 2017 season with Triple-A Iowa, posting a 3.88 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. During three appearances with Chicago, Floro was battered around, allowing seven earned runs in just 9.2 innings.
The Cubs designated Floro for assignment Monday, Bruce Miles of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
By dropping Floro from the 40-man roster and trading Jeimer Candelerio to the Tigers, the Cubs will be able to open up spots for Justin Wilson and Alex Avila, who were acquired from Detroit late Sunday. Floro had worked as a long man out of the bullpen for the Cubs in his three prior appearances at the big-league level this season, surrendering seven runs on 15 hits and two walks over 9.2 innings. If he goes unclaimed off waivers, Floro will likely stick around in the Cubs' organization and report to Triple-A Iowa.
Floro will be sent down to Triple-A Iowa prior to Friday's game against the Orioles, The Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales reports.
Floro heads back to Iowa in order to make room for Jose Quintana on the 25-man roster. During his appearances with the big-league team this season, Floro has given up seven earned runs during 9.2 innings out of the bullpen. The 26-year-old has been up and down between Chicago and Iowa a few times already this season, and could return again in the near future to provide middle-relief depth for the Cubs.
The Cubs recalled Floro from Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Floro will occupy a bullpen spot, but it may only last until the Cubs return from the All-Star break and perhaps welcome back injured starters Kyle Hendricks (hand) and John Lackey (foot).
The Cubs are expected to recall Floro from Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
Muskat spotted Floro in the Cubs' clubhouse, so a move probably will be made before their Friday contest. The right-handed reliever is saddled with an 8.53 ERA in 6.1 major-league innings this year and would just occupy a temporary mop-up role.
Floro was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
With Jeimer Candelario joining the team from Triple-A to fill in temporarily for the injured Addison Russell (shoulder), Floro was sent back to Iowa as the corresponding roster casualty. The 26-year-old didn't appear in a game during his latest stint with the big club, but he compiled a 8.53 ERA and 2.21 WHIP in 6.1 innings with the Cubs earlier in the season. He could be back in the majors sometime later in the year, perhaps once Russell is healthy.
