The Los Angeles Dodgers designated Dylan Floro for assignment in order to create room on their 40-man roster for Curtis Granderson. The veteran outfielder was acquired from the New York Mets along with cash considerations in exchange for cash or a player to be named later.

Friday’s roster move triggered a seven-day period where Los Angeles can attempt to trade the right-hander or place him on waivers. The Dodgers claimed Floro off waivers Aug. 4, four days after he was designated for assignment by the Chicago Cubs.

Floro was immediately optioned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he went 0-1 with a 7.71 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in three games.

Floro made his MLB debut with the Tampa Bay Rays last season, going 0-1 with a 4.20 ERA and 1.87 WHIP in 12 games. The Cubs claimed Floro off waivers during the offseason.

The Cubs later designated him for assignment, sent the 26-year-old outright to Triple-A Iowa once he cleared waivers, and extended a non-roster invitation to Spring Training this year.

Floro allowed a combined seven runs in 9.2 innings of relief (6.52 ERA), while striking out six batters against two walks over three games with the Cubs this season. With Iowa, he went 3-2 with one save, a 3.88 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 25 games (two starts).

Floro had a previous connection to Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman, as he was selected by the Rays in the 13th round of the 2012 Draft.

In 15 career Major League games, Floro is 0-1 with a 5.11 ERA and 1.82 WHIP. Over parts of six seasons in the Minors with the Rays (2012-16), Cubs (2017) and Dodgers (2017) organizations, he’s 39-33 with 10 saves and a 3.39 ERA in 154 games (75 starts).
