The Phillies announced that infielder Pedro Florimon has cleared waivers and been sent outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He’ll become a free agent in the coming days now that he’s been removed from the 40-man roster.
Florimon, 31, hit .225/.276/.423 with a pair of homers, six doubles and a triple in 76 plate appearances for the Phils this season. The veteran has seen action at the MLB level in each of the past eight seasons due primarily to his standout glovework at shortstop. Never much of a threat with the bat, Florimon is a career .211/.270/.319 hitter through 867 plate appearances split between the Orioles, Twins, Pirates and Phillies.
So, so sad…
He’s had a couple of really tough breaks with injuries but he was always solid with the Phillies. I wish him the best of luck. The Phillies more importantly needed to clear this spot. There’s a lot of heavy lifting to do this offseason. .
my heart is broken. he was going to bring multiple championships to philly. what the Phillies doing. just pathetic. fire the gm at once!
this is not going to break my heart
I was kidding..
oh I know, I actually typed it the same time you did just about. funny how it works out
Would have sworn Florimon had been previously outrighted.
You’re not wrong.
P-Flo should be the spokesman for an ED/prostate pharmaceutical.
