Minnesota Twins Place 8-Year Veteran Pitcher On Waivers

The Minnesota Twins have made the decision to designate right-handed relief pitcher Dylan Floro for assignment.

Acquired just before the trade deadline from the Marlins, Floro's performance with the Twins has been less than stellar, as he posted a disappointing 5.29 ERA over 19 appearances.

While his underlying statistics showed some promise, he struggled to recapture the form that made him a shutdown reliever in previous seasons.

Given the regular season's imminent conclusion and his $3.9 million salary, it's likely that Floro will pass through waivers unclaimed.

Nevertheless, with a track record of success in prior years, the 32-year-old right-hander should have no trouble finding a new team in free agency once the season ends.

The move to designate Floro for assignment may not come as a surprise, especially considering the Twins' desire to fine-tune their roster as they approach the playoffs.

Floro's performance during his tenure with the team didn't meet expectations, making it unlikely that he would be included on the Twins' postseason roster.

While his time with the Twins may have been disappointing, Floro's past success in other seasons could make him an attractive option for teams looking to bolster their bullpen during the offseason.

As he becomes a free agent at the end of the season, Floro will have the opportunity to reset and potentially reignite his career with a new team.

His struggles during his brief tenure with the team were evident in his elevated ERA, but the potential for a fresh start in free agency remains. Photo Credit: Katie Stratman-USA TODAY Sports
