Number 162 matters

We won’t get to see that goofy lineup I was hoping for on Sunday, with Keon Broxton playing center, Pedro Florimon at short, Elias Diaz catching, etc, etc. We wouldn’t have expected this once the Pirates were eliminated from NLC contention on Wednesday, but they still need one more win to earn Wild Card home field over the Cubs. (A Cubs loss would also do it, but they’re red...

Pirates bring infielder Pedro Florimon back to majors

MILWAUKEE (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates have selected the contract Pedro Florimon from the minors, bringing the infielder back for another tour in the big leagues this season. Florimon hit .105 with no homers and an RBI in 15 games in Pittsburgh. He was outrighted Aug. 25 to Triple-A Indianapolis, playing three games. Florimon was then assigned to the Pirates' rookie league team in...

Last night’s hero is today’s DFA: A brief tribute to Pedro Florimon

When I was working on my recap last night, I couldn’t decide whether to use the above picture of Pedro Florimon in the post-game celebration or the amazing shot of Cervelli barrel-rolling into home plate with Gregory Polanco face down on the ground waving him home. In the end, the Cervelli/Polanco shot on the recap below was just too fantastic to not use, but I felt like I was...

Pedro Florimon walkoff? PEDRO FLORIMON WALKOFF

When a game ends this late, I have to recap in a jumbled form. But first, P-FLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO That, my friends, is #weirdbaseball. It does not get any more ridiculous than that. Florimon was 1 for 18 as a Pirate before that. With 10 strikeouts. And a popped up bunt in his previous AB that had him earning boos from the sparse crowd that remained. We know he’s on the team...

Game 117: Pirates 9 Diamondbacks 8

It’s 12:31 AM and I just watched Pedro Florimon hit a walkoff double or triple (I don’t know how it was scored, not sure it matters) so you’re getting bullet points: The Pirates just won an 15-inning game and only used two relievers from the tenth inning onwards. Arquimedes Caminero and Joe Blanton put their share of runners on base (a walk and a hit for Caminero, two walks...

Pedro Florimon is the latest random callup

And he’s your new starting shortstop. Here’s our lineup for game 3 in KC. — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) July 22, 2015 Florimon is another “depth” (I use that term VERY lightly) guy that can probably field, but can’t hit at all. It doesn’t help that Francisco Cervelli is still out (hopefully just a day-to...

Defense not a concern with Florimon but Twins hope his bat comes around

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- When the Minnesota Twins departed Fort Myers for the regular season, they did so knowing the same thing they always have about Pedro Florimon. The team's starting shortstop "can pick it," as manager Ron Gardenhire likes to say of the Dominican Republic native. But can he hit? "Sometimes, he's good," Gardenhire said. "Sometimes he's not so good, offensively. So...
