Estevan Florial

Old friend Estevan Florial somehow cleared waivers after being DFA'd by the Yankees, proving that the rest of MLB doesn't see anything different than what the Yanks saw when they cut him loose.

If Florial's next big-league cameo is anything like his previous attempts at sparking something interesting, then it'll be underwhelming and end quickly. But the Yankees have to ride hot streaks where they can find them, and since making his way back to the organization, Florial's been at his powerful best.

Through 11 games back with the organization, Florial has 10 hits in 36 at-bats (two doubles, two homers, and a triple). Perhaps more importanly, though, he's walked like a madman, displaying a discerning eye that could lead to plenty of Volpe Doubles (walk + stolen base) at the next level (with the new bases). Florial's taken 15 walks already this season, giving him a .278 average and .490 OBP.

It's hard to confidently claim Florial has a big-league future with this team, especially since they already cut bait and shucked him off the 40-man after giving him several chances to stick. Again, though, if someone's hot, why not play that hot hand? As sad as it is to say, Oswaldo Cabrera doesn't seem to be contributing much at the moment, and could benefit from a Triple-A reset while Florial swipes a 40-man spot from the aforementioned trio from the Bauers section.
