Rochester Red Wings SS Pedro Florimon was named to the International League’s all star team today. Florimon is Rochester’s only representative, which speaks to the overall lack of talent on the club. Claimed off waivers in the offseason from Baltimore, Florimon has spent half of 2012 at AA. While in AAA (47 games), Florimon is hitting .260/.323/.370 for the Red Wings. He’s hit just 3 homers and walked 15 times, but has struck out about once per game.
Florimon is an average defender and at 25 his offensive potential has pretty much been realized. He has just a .323 career OBP in the minors, so I don’t expect he’ll be making an impact in the majors anytime soon.
