At one point in time, it seemed as though Dylan Floro was going to be a first round draft pick.
However, a poor showing during his senior year in high school led to his stock dipping a bit. Nonetheless, Floro was ranked just outside of Baseball America’s top 100 draft prospects entering the 2009 draft. A commitment to Cal State Fullerton led to him sliding down the draft board and the Tampa Bay Rays would select him in the 20th round.
Floro chose to honor his commitment and attended Cal State, but his collegiate career led to his draft status dipping even further as all the promising attributes that made him so pleasing to scouts had gone downhill.
The Tampa Bay Rays would draft Floro once again, in the 13th round of the 2012 draft and this time Floro signed a contract with the team.
Floro quietly produced excellent number as he steadily rose through the ranks of the Rays minor league system and found himself in Triple-A by the end of 2015. He’d make his Major League debut the following season and pitched in 12 games for Tampa Bay.
Floro would be designated for assignment the next January and has been journeying around the league ever since.
Since leaving the Rays, Floro has pitched for the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Entering the 2020 season, Dylan Floro is currently on the Dodgers 40-man roster.
