“He’s got a good arm, a heavy sinker, puts the ball in the ground,” – said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts of Floro. “He’s a guy that can go multiple innings if we need as well.“
In order to make room for Dylan Floro on the 40-man roster, Dodgers have designated pitcher Daniel Corcino for assignment. Corcino was present in two games this MLB season as a relief and has 3.02 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 17 games he spent with Dodgers’ affiliates OKC and Double-A Tulsa.
In other roster moves, Cincinnati Reds have optioned utility man Brandon Dixon to Triple-A Louisville and recalled Tanner Rainey and Cody Reed. Dixon has a batting average of .238 and one home run in his MLB career.
