Florial is the clear winner in center field with Aaron Hicks. A need can be met in the midst of a prolonged downturn.

"We haven't decided anything definite yet," Aaron Boone said after the loss. "There could be something... nothing final yet."

In 88 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkevalle this year, Floreal batted .284 with 14 home runs, 32 stolen bases and an OPS of .852. He had 122 strikeouts in his 349 at-bats, a rate slightly down from a few years ago but still high.
