FRANCISCO LIRIANO RUMORS

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals – Game 136

Woohoo!  Potential sweep?  Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaahhhhhhh buddy! It’ll probably be a tough go of it today but all the Pirates need to do is keep on winning every series. If they do that they’ll be just fine. Francisco Liriano (3-10, 3.98) tries for the sweep against the hated Johnny Cueto (15-8, 2.56). There aren’t going to be any stats today because I must do this preview from...

Francisco Liriano (SP, PIT) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues ANALYSIS: Since returning from injury on July 13th, Francisco Liriano has been very steady, and worthy of owning in all leagues.  He hasn’t allowed more than 2 ER in the 6 starts after his July 13th return (in which he allowed a whopping 3), and after a 6 BB hiccup in […]

Liriano works his magic: Pirates defeat Giants, 3-1

Francisco Liriano dealt like a top-of-the-rotation ace Tuesday night, striking out 11 in a 3-1 win against the San Francisco Giants. The Pirates powered up early with home runs by Josh Harrison and Travis Snider, then rode Liriano for seven innings on a breezy and cool night at AT&T Park. The club is now a season-high eight games over .500 with a 57-49 record and pulled just...

Liriano pitches a gem to lead Pirates over Dodgers, 6-1

One of the biggest questions facing the Pirates heading down the stretch is whether or not they had an ace to lead their pitching staff. That question might have been answered Wednesday night when Francisco Liriano put together a brilliant outing against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Liriano (2-7), expected to be the ace this season but hampered instead by injury and inconsistency,...

Like a broken record: Francisco Liriano once again tries to find himself

Rather than re-hashing the same old same old “The Pirates need Francisco Liriano back on track to contend” that gets trotted out every time he starts, let’s take a minute a check out his Brooks Baseball page to see if the narrative that he’s looked better since his return from the disabled list except for his control checks out. If we’re just going by pitch velocities,...

Francisco Liriano tries (again) to get back on track

I’ve written quite a bit about the Pirates’ situation in the last two days, so tonight is easy: Francisco Liriano is probably the first or second most important piece to getting the Pirates back into the playoffs in the second half. In his last start on Sunday, his stuff looked OK but his control was awful. I’m always willing to give guys a one or two start grace period with...

Pirates activate Francisco Liriano from DL

The Pirates on Sunday activated lefty Francisco Liriano (strained left oblique) from the disabled list. Liriano recently completed a minor-league rehab assignment but hasn't made a start for the Pirates in more than a month. Liriano, 30, has a 4.60 ERA after 14 starts this season, but the Pirates will be hoping for improved results now that he's fully healthy. Last season...

Liriano settles into groove in Triple-A rehab start

Francisco Liriano is likely heading back to Pittsburgh soon after a dominating performance in a rehabilitation start with Triple-A Indianapolis. After shaking off some early rust, Liriano retired the final 15 batters he faced in a 1-0 win over Lehigh Valley. He struck out eight and walked none in six innings, throwing 76 pitches. Liriano had not pitched since a June 10 start against...

Francisco Liriano an interesting option among Week 11 Two Start Pitchers

Plenty of Two Start Pitchers options on the waiver wire for Week 11 of the Fantasy Baseball season. Would you stop reading if I told you I like A.J. Burnett and Francisco Liriano this week? You might, and I would respect you, but they have favorable matchups in Week 11 and are owned in less than 70 percent of leagues, so there is a chance they could help you out. Justin Verlander...

Pirates win the lottery with Francisco Liriano

Or did they? I pick the games every day. Perhaps you know that. As such, I see trends. I also follow the games in the evening and on Monday night, I was watching as Francisco Liriano again won big with scary, impressive numbers. My first thought was, "Anybody could have had this guy." He was unwanted. His career was in such disarray that he could not ask for much money...
