Florimon (dislocated ankle) was placed on the 60-day DL on Tuesday, Stephen Gross of The Allentown Morning Call reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Phillies made room on the 40-man roster for prospect J.P. Crawford by moving Florimon to the 60-day DL. We already knew his season was over, so this doesn't change his timetable. Manager Pete Mackanin has lobbied to have Florimon back next year in a utility role.

Florimon was carted off the field Saturday with an apparent ankle injury, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

He stepped on the first-bag bag and his ankle bent awkwardly. Hyun Soo Kim entered the game in right field following the incident as Nick Williams shifted over to center. The team has yet to provide an update on Florimon's status, but it looked like a serious, potentially season-ending injury.

Florimon will start in center field and bat seventh Sunday against the Cubs, Stephen Gross of The Allentown Morning Call reports.

EDGE Analysis

Florimon will be making his third consecutive start in center field, an indication manager Pete Mackanin views him as the primary option at the position until the Phillies get back one of Odubel Herrera (hamstring) or Aaron Altherr (hamstring) from the disabled list. Both outfielders seem to be making positive progress and could be activated as soon as the upcoming week, so Florimon's run of regular at-bats could come to a swift end. Florimon has gone 7-for-22 with four RBI since joining the Phillies earlier this month.

Florimon is starting in center field and hitting seventh Friday against the Cubs, Meghan Montemurro of The News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since Florimon's contract was selected from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Aug. 17, he's been used as a true utility man for the Phillies. In the time since, he's spent time at second and third base, as well as each spot in the outfield. The righty has been effective at the plate too, and has gone 6-for-15 with four RBI. However, expectations for Florimon should be kept in check, as he owns a career line of .204/.266/.302.

Florimon had his contract selected from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Florimon will take the roster spot of Nick Pivetta, who was sent to the minors following his start Wednesday. The 30-year-old hasn't seen any major-league action this season, but he owns a .265/.347/.410 slash line through 90 games with the IronPigs. Florimon has hit just .200/.261/.297 across parts of six big-league seasons, so he'll likely primarily play off the bench during what should be a brief stint with the Phillies.
