Florimon has cleared waivers, and will be outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Bill Brink reports.

This comes as no surprise, as Florimon has shown little ability to hit big league pitching (.204 career average). He will provide the Pirates with organizational middle-infield depth.

The Pirates claimed Florimon off waivers from the Nationals on Thursday, James Wagner of the Washington Post reports.

Florimon did not appear in a game with the Nationals after being claimed by the club in mid-September. He struggled mightily with the bat last season but could get a shot to compete for a utility job during spring training.

The Nationals claimed Florimon off waivers from the Twins on Thursday.

Florimon compiled a disastrous .092/.179/.132 batting line in 33 games with Minnesota earlier this season, but he'll get a fresh start with Washington, with Eury Perez designated for assignment in the corresponding move. Although Florimon has played primarily at short in his professional career, he can play second base and third base if needed. He'll likely serve merely as depth over the final week of the regular season.

Pedro Florimon Jr. went 0-for-3 and lost a popup in the sun for an RBI double Thursday in the loss to the Angels.

Florimon is hitting .096 this year, so he needs to be pretty stellar defensively to justify some playing time and he hasn't been quite that good. He'll return to the bench once Danny Santana gets healthy.

Twins recalled INF Pedro Florimon from Triple-A Rochester.

He's taking Trevor Plouffe's (oblique) spot on the roster. Florimon was sent down last month after hitting just .108/.194/.154, and he didn't exactly catch the world on fire at Triple-A, either, with a .230/.291/.330. The 27-year-old will be used as a backup infielder.

Pedro Florimon (appendectomy) is scheduled to play in a minor league game on Friday.

It will be his first live game since having his appendix removed in mid-February. Florimon is hoping to open the season as the Twins' starting shortstop, but he'll have to avoid physical setbacks to pull that off.
