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.
