As a high school senior in Atwater, Calif., in 2009, Floro ranked as the No. 103 on BA's Top 200 Prospects list for the draft, but scouts say his stuff and mechanics have gone backward at Cal State Fullerton. He has performed at a high level anyway, anchoring the Titans rotation as a junior this spring, affirming his reputation as a competitor and a winner. Over the years, Floro's delivery has morphed from conventional, to funky, to downright out of whack. Scouts aren't as concerned with his extreme coil at the start of his delivery as they are with his crow-hop finish and violent recoil. His funkiness does add deception and life, helping his 88-91 mph fastball (which sometimes tickles 92 early in games) play up. Floro used to have a plus slider, but scouts now consider it a fringy offering in the 76-79 mph range. He has worked hard on developing his changeup in the last year, but it still rates as just another fringy offering. Floro's delivery causes scouts to project him as a reliever, and his good command, deception, movement and savvy give him a chance to be a big leaguer.
