FRANCISCO LIRIANO RUMORS

The second half climb continues

Last night was a nice win for the Pirates, in the way that it’s always nice when a good team finds a way to beat a bad team.

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.

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 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.

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...

Francisco Liriano looks to get the Pirates a sweep (but first, some required reading)

Before we get started, there are two really good reads about the Pirates’ early-season struggles that were published at national websites today that I think you should take a look at. The first is Mike Petriello’s long look at the Pirates’ mammoth pitching issues at FanGraphs and the second is Jonah Keri’s “how did the Pirates get from where they were in October to where...
