Dylan Floro

Dylan Floro

31-Year-Old PitcherRP
Miami Marlins
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Floro was a candidate to open 2022 as the Marlins closer, but right shoulder tendinitis put him behind schedule during spring training and delayed his season debut until May. The veteran was eased back into action and recorded more walks (four) than strikeouts (three) over his first 12 appearances (11.2 innings). After the slow start, Floro quietly regained his form and was one of the better relief pitchers in baseball. The 32-year-old posted a 1.96 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 43:11 K:BB ratio over his final 41.1 innings and ended the season as the Marlins closer for the second year in a row. With free agency approaching in 2024, Miami is likely to try to build up Floro's trade value in the first half this season. Consider him the initial favorite to close, but spring training should give us a better idea as to how first-time manager, Skip Schumaker, intends to manage the late innings. Read Past Outlooks
RANKSFrom Preseason
$Signed a one-year, $3.9 million contract with the Marlins in November of 2023.
Agrees to terms with Marlins
PMiami Marlins
November 18, 2022
Floro avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.9 million contract with the Marlins on Friday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Floro supplanted Tanner Scott as Miami's closer late last season and finished with 10 saves, seven of which came in the final month of the campaign. He could retain that role in 2023, though it's also possible that the Marlins acquire a reliever with more overpowering stuff to work the ninth inning. Despite the fact that he doesn't post big strikeout numbers, Floro has been a solid contributor since joining Miami in 2021, racking up 25 saves and 16 holds while recording a 2.91 ERA over 117.2 relief innings.

Stat Review

This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

2017
Floro came to Miami via trade last February and was rock solid in a setup role before landing the Marlins' closer chair after the trade deadline. The well-traveled reliever converted 15 of 21 save opportunities while logging a 2.81 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 62:25 K:BB over 64 innings. He also recorded a career-high 11 holds while tallying six wins to cap off an outstanding season in high-leverage. Floro isn't known for his strikeout prowess (23%), but he induced plenty of ground balls (49.2%), kept the ball in the park - his 0.3 HR/9 was sixth-best among qualified relievers - and permitted just an 85.9-mph average exit velocity that ranked in the top 5% of the league. One blemish in his profile was a 9.3% walk rate, which was his worst mark in the category to date. Floro should get a nice raise through arbitration and maintain his high-leverage role in 2022, but whether that's as a closer or setup man remains to be seen.
Floro bounced around, spending time with the Rays, Cubs and Reds before landing with the Dodgers (for a second time) in July of 2018. He has settled in with Los Angeles and helped the team to a World Series victory, making three appearances against the Rays, including in Game 6. He was left off the roster for the Wild Card Series, which seems preposterous on its surface after the 2020 season Floro had, but keep in mind that was a three-game set with Walker Buehler and Clayton Kershaw starting the first two games. Floro induced weak contact with the best of them during the regular season, with his 84.6 mph average exit velocity ranking in the top 5% of the league. He does not overpower hitters, but with his sinker-slider-changeup arsenal, he gets hitters -- and righties in particular -- to pound the ball into the dirt. While he's a quality reliever, Floro is not a serious threat to the closer job.
Adam Kolarek is the guy the Dodgers used with a lefty up and a groundball needed; that's Floro's job when a righty is at the plate. Floro has made a career out of generating groundballs with his sinker/slider approach. The two pitches tunnel together nicely as he throws the fastball 91-93 mph, but can get his slider up to 89 mph as well. He can get strikeouts when needed, but his intention is to tear up the infield and be the groundskeeping crew's worst nightmare. Fantasy-wise, he doesn't have a role that's conducive to success in most formats because he doesn't work in enough games and the wins are all about the opportunities rather than a skill. As long as he remains a Dodger, this is his future.
Floro joined the Reds on a minor-league contract and began the campaign with Triple-A Louisville. It wasn't long before Cincinnati added him to its active roster. Working mostly in long relief, Floro was sporting a 2.72 ERA in 36.1 innings when he was dealt to the Dodgers in early July. He was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City three weeks later, only to return five days later as an injury opened a spot. Floro remained with the Dodgers the rest of the season, registering six of his seven holds after the trade. His calling card is a career 54% groundball rate, helping to offset a decent-but-not-dominant 21 K%. As is the case with many groundball specialists, Floro's WHIP runs high but his ERA is kept in check since he minimizes homers. He doesn't amass ample innings or strikeouts to be a fantasy factor in anything but the deepest of leagues, and then it helps if holds are part of the scoring.
Floro had an up-and-down induction into the majors over 15 innings, generating a 4.20 ERA and 14 strikeouts during a 12-appearance stretch from early-July to mid-August. The right-hander turned in scoreless outings in half of those appearances, but gave up eight runs (seven earned) in the other six. The limited sample helped him generate a career-high 8.4 K/9 -- the 25-year-old has not displayed high-strikeout upside at any of his minor league stints. However, he's proven more than capable of getting outs, posting a sub-3.00 ERA with the top minor league affiliate. Floro could make a case for a bullpen spot at the major league level in 2017 with a strong spring, but his middling strikeout rates in the minors suggest there's little upside here.
