Phillies placed INF Pedro Florimon on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured right foot.
Florimon fouled a ball off his foot in the first inning of Tuesday night's game against the Dodgers. He was getting a rare start at third base and was slotted into the No. 2 spot in manager Gabe Kapler's lineup. This could obviously be a lengthy absence for the 31-year-old utility infielder.

Pedro Florimon left Tuesday night's game against the Dodgers after fouling a ball off his foot in the first inning.

Maikel Franco took over at third base. Florimon was batting second in place of Rhys Hoskins, who got the night off after fouling a ball off his face on Monday. There should be an update soon from Dodger Stadium.

Pedro Florimon homered and pitched a perfect inning out of the pen Friday against the Cardinals.

Florimon made his first career relief appearance back in the Phillies' third game of the season, giving up two runs. He lowered his ERA to 9.00 tonight, though. The homer was his second of the year. He'll continue to see some time at shortstop with Scott Kingery struggling and J.P. Crawford sidelined.

Phillies selected the contract of INF/OF Pedro Florimon from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The move likely means that Florimon has won a job on the 25-man roster for the Phillies, as it would be odd if he was added to the 40-man roster without that occuring. He's hit well this spring, and his ability to play in the dirt and the grass makes him a quality bench option for Philadelphia during the 2018 season.

Pedro Florimon went 2-for-3 with a double as the Phillies were shut out by the Orioles in Grapefruit League play on Sunday.

Florimon also swiped a base in the contest, his second of the spring to go along with his .304 batting average. He's a career .209/.269/.308 hitter at the big league level, but with a nice showing in Florida he has a chance to crack the Opening Day roster as a reserve infielder.
Mar 11 - 10:10 PM

Phillies re-signed INF Pedro Florimon to a minor league contract.

Florimon appeared in 15 games with the Phillies during the second half and should find himself in the mix for a bench job in spring training. The 30-year-old owns a .209/.269/.308 batting line over 271 games in the majors.

Pedro Florimon has elected free agency.

Florimon was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster and will now seek a job elsewhere. He's hit only .209/.269/.308 over parts of seven big league seasons.

Phillies placed INF/OF Pedro Florimon on the 60-day disabled list with a right ankle dislocation.

The move clears a spot for J.P. Crawford on the 40-man roster. Florimon injured his ankle during Saturday's game and will miss the remainder of the season.

Pedro Florimon left Saturday's game and had to be carted off the field after injuring his right ankle on first base.

Florimon stepped awkwardly on the right side of the bag and rolled his ankle over. In a best-case scenario, it's a bad sprain. It'd be a nice surprise if he plays again this season.

Pedro Florimon had an RBI single and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

In 13 games since having his contract purchased by the Phillies, the 30-year-old has 14 hits in 42 at-bats. The journeyman is batting .333/.364/.476 while playing all over the diamond in those 13 games.

Pedro Beato was designated for assignment to make room for him. Florimon has spent all of 2017 in the minor leagues, hitting .265 with 10 homers, 33 RBI and four steals over 90 games for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He'll give the Phillies some infield depth.
