After losing Stolmy Pimentel to the Texas Rangers today, the Pittsburgh Pirates were able to retain 28-year-old infielder Pedro Florimon. He has cleared waivers and has been assigned to AAA Indianapolis.
Florimon impressed on defense and with his speed this Spring, but those parts of his game have never been in question. He has a career line of .204/.266/.300 in 214 games in the Majors. He was out of options and didn’t make the 25-man Opening Day roster, so he was designated for assignment last Sunday. Florimon should get plenty of playing time at Indianapolis and he will be a depth option this season.
