Starting pitcher Dylan Floro began playing in the Tampa Bay Rays minor league system in 2012.

He was originally drafted by the club in the 20th round of the 2009 amateur draft, one pick after outfielder Alex Hassan, but opted not to sign. The Rays then took him again in the 13th round of the 2012 amateur draft and he inked a contract for a $100,000 bonus.

In 2012, he went 4-1 with a 2.40 ERA in 18 relief appearances for the Hudson Valley Renegades. The next year, he was 11-2 with a 1.77 ERA in 23 starts between the Bowling Green Hot Rods and Charlotte Stone Crabs, earning a spot on the Midwest League Mid- and Post-Season All-Star teams and the MiLB.com Organization All-Star squad. In addition, he was named the Rays Minor League Pitcher of the Year. He was 11-13 with a 3.48 ERA in 28 starts for the Montgomery Biscuits in 2014.

Floro reached the majors with the Rays in the middle of the 2016 season, going 0-1, 4.20 in 12 appearances out of the bullpen. After the season, he was claimed off waivers by the Chicago Cubs and pitched 3 times for them in 2017, with no decisions. he was 3-2, 3.88 in 25 games for the AAA Iowa Cubs, and on August 4th was placed on waivers again and this time was claimed by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He finished the year back in AAA with the Oklahoma City Dodgers. In January of 2018, he signed a free agent contract with the Cincinnati Reds and finally saw some extended action in the majors, pitching 25 times with a 3-2 record and a 2.72 ERA. On July 4th, he was traded back to the Dodgers along with Zach Neal and international bonus pool money in return for Ps James Marinan and Aneurys Zabala. Both Floro and Neal had been recent members of the Dodgers organization. On August 18th, he lost a game in an unusual manner when he committed a "walk-off balk" against the Seattle Mariners. It came with one out in the 10th inning with the bases loaded and the game tied at 4; Floro flinched during his delivery allowing Cameron Maybin to score from third base. First base umpire Andy Fletcher called the play.
