Miami Marlins reliever Dylan Floro is another good bullpen option for the Colorado Rockies
Miami Marlins reliever Dylan Floro could also be a good bullpen option for the Colorado Rockies.
Rockies fans probably remember Floro for his three seasons (2018 through 2020) with the Dodgers but he is entering his second season with the Marlins and in 2021, he ended up being their closer.
Floro, 31, appeared in 68 games and had 15 saves with an ERA of 2.81 for the Marlins. He had a 149 ERA+, a 2.81 FIP, a 1.219 WHIP, and he walked 3.5 and struck out 8.7 batters per nine innings.
He was not great in 2019 (95 ERA+) but he had a good season in 2018 (54 games, 181 ERA+, 3.08 FIP, 2.25 ERA) and in 2020 (25 games, 170 ERA+, 2.60 FIP, 2.59 ERA).
Floro could be good for the Rockies because of his groundball rate. Since 2019, his groundball rate is 51.1 percent, which is 27th-highest among relievers with at least 100 innings since then. That would put him at number one among Rockies relievers.
Considering his closing experience last year, the Rockies could also use him as a closer, which is questionable for the Rockies since they had some issues with that in 2021. He also could be a good setup man.
Floro is entering his second year of arbitration so, at least under the current CBA, he will have two years remaining until he becomes a free agent.
