John Shipley: Florimon has team weighing move for Dozier
"Florimon has kind of made the plays and shown some of the range that you really like from a shortstop, that Dozier didn't necessarily do," assistant general manager Rob Antony said Sunday, Sept. 16. "So it might be a situation where we still think Dozier can be a good player, but he may end up being a second baseman instead of a shortstop."
"I'm very comfortable with him [Florimon] out there," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "We're not going to name a starting lineup (for 2013) or anything like right now, or even later, but I really like him out there. I think there are things he can get better at ... but I like him. I like the way he moves, I like the way he watches. He pays attention. He's got great hands; he can makes some plays, with a strong arm."
