Continued: Reusse: Florimon had long journey to majors

He played 43 games, with a modest seven errors, and an equally modest .219 average.

“There were some bumps in the road last year, but he got experience that he needed,” Gardenhire said.

This season, Florimon has been charged with four errors … and none in his past 27 games. On Thursday night, he shut off a Milwaukee rally with a tremendous stop on a hot shot — turning it into a forceout with a quick flip to Dozier on second base.

“He’s holding his own at the plate,” Gardenhire said. “He’s better righthanded, but he’s gotten stronger, and can get the barrel to the ball lefthanded. He has a chance to be our shortstop for a while here.”

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500. preusse@startribune.com
