Has Dylan Floro finally flipped the switch?

Lost within a frustrating loss to the Mets on Friday night, Dylan Floro looked great. Floro faced the talented top of New York’s lineup in the eighth inning—Brandon Nimmo, Starling Marte and Francisco Lindor—and retired them in order. He threw 12 of 16 pitches for strikes (75%).

The Marlins’ incumbent closer entering spring training, Floro missed the first month-plus of the 2022 regular season due to right rotator cuff tendonitis. Throughout his minor league rehab work and upon returning from the injured list, the quality of his stuff was noticeably down from the previous year.
