Florimon isn't a lock to be in the Opening Day lineup as he's seen behind at the plate after missing almost a month of spring training after recovering from an appendectomy, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "We want to make sure that when we break here, he's ready to do this. If I feel his swing isnít there yet, then I would have to do something. We just need him to put the ball in play, no strikeouts," said manager Ron Gardenhire.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Desperate to find a viable solution at shortstop, the Twins gave Florimon a six-week trial as Minnesota's starting shortstop hoping his defense could offset a weak bat. The results were mixed as advanced fielding metrics showed Florimon would have been a slightly above average fielder (1.4 UZR) but he hit just .219/.272/.307. Florimon has little power and while he draws walks, he strikes out too much. If he can improve at the plate or prove he is a Gold Glove-caliber fielder, he could win a starting shortstop job. However, the odds seem long that will happen since he will be 26 this season.

2012

Florimon earned a cup of coffee after a decent year at Triple-A in 2011. He showed the ability to get on base consistently in Double-A, recording a .344 on-base percentage, but he hasn't shown enough contact or hit for enough power to back it up with much. Expect the 25-year-old to get a shot at Triple-A Rochester to open 2012 after the Twins claimed him off waivers in December.

2011

Florimon has spent more than a full season at High-A Frederick, showing enough with the bat (.275/.345/.426) to where the Orioles need to be patient with him at Double-A. His limited exposure to advanced pitching hasn't gone well, but 158 at-bats can't be considered a large enough sample size to completely write him off. Unfortunately, the ceiling here appears to be that of a utility player should he ever hit enough to advance to the big league level.
