Florimon was selected off of waivers from Baltimore over the winter, where he was ranked the 29th best prospect in the Orioles system bt Baseball America at the time. He got his September call up after going .267/.344/.396 for the Orioles AA affiliate where he played SS (except for 1 game at 2B and 1 game at CF).
Florimon is off to a good start at AA New Britain this year. In 74 PA, he is hitting .313/.380/.438 with 2 2B and 2 HR. He also has a 1.000 Fielding %. Hopefully, he can keep up that kind of production and provide some much needed depth in the middle infield.
