Righthanded reliever Dylan Floro had more transactions as a Cub than many players have in half a dozen years. More on that in a moment.
The Dodgers have claimed righty Dylan Floro off waivers from the Cubs, the Los Angeles organization has announced.
Floro, 26, was knocked around in 9⅔ innings (over three relief appearances) earlier this year with the Cubs. And he has managed just 4.8 K/9 in his 48⅔ Triple-A frames on the season.
Still, teams obviously remain interested in Floro’s ability to draw grounders. He has induced worm burners on 61.6% of the balls put in play against him this year at Iowa, where he owns a 3.88 ERA.
Love the term “worm burners.”
Here is the complete list of Floro’s 15 transactions since he joined the Cubs, all dates 2017:
January 17: claimed off waivers from Rays
February 1: designated for assignment
February 3: cleared waivers, assigned outright to Iowa
May 8: recalled from Iowa
May 10: optioned to Iowa
May 21: recalled from Iowa
May 22: optioned to Iowa
June 5: recalled from Iowa
June 6: optioned to Iowa
June 22: recalled from Iowa
June 26: optioned to Iowa
July 7: recalled from Iowa
July 13: optioned to Iowa
July 31: designated for assignment
August 4: claimed on waivers by Dodgers
Quite the journey through the Cubs organization. As noted above, his three relief appearances (in five total stints with the Cubs) weren’t very good. Perhaps he’ll have better luck in Los Angeles. In case you don’t remember him pitching for the Cubs, there is photographic proof at the top of this post.
