A quick look at Dylan Floro, added to the Chicago Cubs today from Triple-A Iowa
The Chicago Cubs made a switch today sending down Pierce Johson and calling up Dylan Floro to join the team today against the Brewers
Dylan Floro is a relieve pitcher that has seen the Major league Chicago Cubs roster before this stint. The right-hander has been doing pretty good in Iowa posting a 0-0 and a 2.08 ERA. He will be replacing Pierce Johnson who was sent back down.
Floro attended Buhach Colony High school in California where he piled up a 33-5 record with the club. It was good enough to be drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 20th round in 2009 but instead attended California State in Fullerton. He played for the Titans from 2010 to 2012. At the University he went 21-8 with a 3.29 ERA and 178 strikeouts.
After Dylan Floro’s time in College, he was drafted again by the Rays in the 13th round of the 2012 draft. He made his pro debut that season with the Hudson Valley Renegades. In 2013 he played for the Bowling Green Hot Rods and the Charlotte Stone Crabs. I love minor league team names. He compiled an 11-2 record with a 1.77 ERA with a Minor League Pitcher of the Year award for his troubles. He saw one stint in the Majors in 2016 with the Rays.
Floro was taken by the Chicago Cubs last January off waivers and assigned to the Iowa Cubs.
