Dylan Floro quietly putting up zeroes for the Dodgers

first_img“For me, I know Corey is really grinding right now, trying to work through his mechanics,” Roberts said of dropping Seager in the batting order. “We have other guys who are swinging the bats really well right now. So for him to kind of sit back and let the game come to him, get guys on base and put him in situations where he could potentially drive in a run without getting a hit, make him feel better about his at-bats, that’s a little bit of my thought behind it.“But I know once he does get going I expect him to get back to the top of the order.”REHAB CONTINUESLeft-hander Tony Cingrani made his third rehab appearance Thursday, his second with Triple-A Oklahoma City. Cingrani pitched a scoreless inning, walking one. So far, he has allowed two hits and walked two while striking out three in three innings.“He said he felt good, said he could pitch again tomorrow,” said Roberts who talked to Cingrani after Thursday’s day game in OKC. “But we’re going to run the play out, have him do the back-to-back, the one-plus.”UP NEXTNationals (RHP Anibal Sanchez, 0-5, 5.15 ERA) at Dodgers (RHP Kenta Maeda, 3-2, 4.66 ERA), Friday, 7:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), MLB Network (out of market only), 570 AM How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES — There are some who are protective of Dylan Floro’s unblemished ERA.“Get away from him,” closer Kenley Jansen called from across the locker room when he saw a reporter talking to Floro before Thursday’s game. “Don’t talk to him. You’re going to jinx him.”Jansen was only partially correct. Floro gave up his first runs of the season in the eighth inning against the Washington Nationals. But his ERA remains 0.00 – both runs were unearned.Floro’s 16-1/3 innings before that were the most by any reliever in the majors without giving up a run this season. Right-handed hitters are particularly vexed facing Floro. They are 6 for 47 (.128) with 10 strikeouts.

I’m not the most talkative guy anyway,” Floro said with a smile.SEAGER SLUMPShortstop Corey Seager batted fifth in the lineup Wednesday night and went 1 for 4 with an infield single to drive in a run. Batting right in front of him, Cody Bellinger was intentionally walked twice.Thursday, Roberts dropped Seager to sixth in the lineup – the lowest he has batted in a regular-season lineup since his rookie season in 2016 – with David Freese and Max Muncy between Bellinger and Seager.“It can. But I don’t think it’s going to weigh on Corey,” Roberts said when asked if that strategy might bother a player. “If teams keep doing that, they’re going to pay. He’s too good of a hitter and mentally I don’t worry about his psyche.”Seager took a four-game hitting streak into Thursday’s game but was just six for his last 42 (.143) without a home run since April 12.Related Articles “I’m just executing pitches right now,” Floro said. “Getting ahead of guys for the most part. When I have a chance to put guys away, I’m putting them away, going to the fastball up. I think the key thing is the mentality – getting ahead of them, putting it more in my count and then putting them away with the right pitch.“I’m going out there and I’m not thinking about pitches two and three. I’m thinking about that one hitter and that one pitch and that’s all. I’m focusing on that one pitch and that’s all that matters at that time.”Acquired from the Cincinnati Reds last July, Floro has quietly been a valuable part of the Dodgers’ bullpen ever since. He has been charged with five runs in 45 innings as a Dodger (1.00 ERA) and held hitters to a .178 average.“Dylan has a lot of confidence, a lot of conviction,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “If you talk about the mix, he has a sinker that can get a ball on the ground, that can bore in on a right-handed hitter. He has a 94 mph fastball, a four-seamer, that can beat a bat, that he can pitch with at the top of the zone and keep them off his slider. So when you’re talking about the righty, those things make him very effective.“But I think it’s just the confidence he has. And I think we’ve done a good job of using him and not over-using him. Dylan’s in a good place.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco last_img read more
