In 2018, Florial was considered one of the most promising young players in the minor leagues. In May, he suffered a break in the hamate bone in his right wrist, which necessitated surgery.

As a result, he missed the first three months of the season while playing for Tampa.

Florial was given an invitation to participate in the Yankees’ 2019 spring training as a non-roster player. During spring training, he sustained a fracture in the distal radius of his right wrist.

The fracture was not displaced. In June, he made his way back to Tampa, which is where he would spend the 2019 season playing baseball.

On August 28, 2020, Florial received a promotion to the major leagues. It was the first game of a doubleheader that he played in that day, and it was against the New York Mets that he recorded his first hit in the major leagues.

At the conclusion of the day, he was demoted to a lower level of competition.

After Trey Amburgey went down with an injury on July 20, 2021, the Yankees decided to recall Florial to take his place in the lineup.

He drove in his first run as a member of the major leagues by way of a groundout to first base, and he later hit his first home run as a member of the major leagues by way of a solo shot off of the Philadelphia Phillies’ Enyel De Los Santos.
