Nationals claimed INF Pedro Florimon off waivers from the Twins.

Florimon is a .204/.266/.300 career hitter in 692 career plate appearances at the major league level, but he is athletic enough to play all around the infield. The Nats designated outfielder Eury Perez for assignment to open up a 40-man roster spot.

Pedro Florimon Jr. went 0-for-3 and lost a popup in the sun for an RBI double Thursday in the loss to the Angels.

Florimon is hitting .096 this year, so he needs to be pretty stellar defensively to justify some playing time and he hasn't been quite that good. He'll return to the bench once Danny Santana gets healthy.

Pedro Florimon struck out all three times he was up Saturday against the Yankees.

Florimon is 1-for-11 since returning from an appendectomy that cost him the first 2 1/2 weeks of the exhibition season. The Twins aren't playing him for his bat anyway, so he'll be on the active roster to start the year.

Pedro Florimon (appendectomy) is scheduled to play in a minor league game on Friday.

It will be his first live game since having his appendix removed in mid-February. Florimon is hoping to open the season as the Twins' starting shortstop, but he'll have to avoid physical setbacks to pull that off.
