Dodgers News: Dylan Floro Set to Rejoin Team in Colorado

The worst gift in Major League Baseball… pitching at Coors Field.



Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register mentioned in a blurb that the Dodgers will be activating right-handed reliever Dylan Floro from the 10-day injured list at some point during their 3-game series with the Colorado Rockies.

The reliever was expected to make a second rehab appearance for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, but instead he will join the team in Colorado. He made one appearance for the Single-A Quakes and pitched a scoreless inning, working around 2 hits, and a hit batter.

After opening the season as one of baseball’s best relief options, Floro has struggled to the tune of a 8.15 ERA since May 11 while allowing 50% of inherited runners to score. Many point to a May 22 outing in Tampa Bay as the true beginning of his unwravelling. Nevertheless, he remains an important piece of the Dodgers bullpen, at least ahead of Wednesday’s trade deadline.

Originally picked up by Los Angeles from the Cincinnati Reds last July – July 4th, to be exact — the groundball pitcher has accumulated a 7-4 record, with a 3.02 ERA in 66 games in blue.

With the Dodger pitching staff being somewhat depleted, and the rookie Tony Gonsolin expected to make his second career start on Tuesday in Colorado, the time table assuredly moved up for Floro, even if he wasn’t 100% ready.

  1. Dylan has had stretched where he has been really good. And — the flip side. Honeycutt should be looking at video (which he probably is) to see where the difference lies. Could be mechanics. I do think his unique face in glove windup is disruptive to batters. I, for one, welcome him back.

  2. Newsflash Nobody cares cause floro is horrible all he does is give up runs and lose games…. end of story

  3. News flash back at ya. Dylan had a 1.63 ERA for us last year. And was un hittable this year till mid May. Might be fixed now.

  4. Wayne, the BP has had its issues and Floro is or was certainly not alone here. Yes HR’s are up everywhere but the BP’s biggest issue IMHO is serving up HR’s.at inopportune times with men on base. But then again a few of our starters are guilty of that as well.
