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...

D-backs rally late but fall to Pirates in 15 innings

PITTSBURGH -- Pedro Florimon tripled home Francisco Cervelli with two outs in the bottom of the 15th to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 9-8 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Cervelli singled off Keith Hessler (0-1) for his fourth hit and Florimon hit a high flyball to right field that clanged off the wall. The Pirates catcher had little trouble beating the throw...

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...

Try to do better, Pirates

There are several players in the Pirates’ lineup tonight that if you added their batting averages together, you might get one decent baseball player. Things are in such a state that starting Pedro Florimon, who was last seen in Minnesota hitting .092/.179/.132 last year, doesn’t seem like an awful idea. Good luck, Charlie Morton. This concludes my preview of tonight’s game.

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...
