FRANCISCO LIRIANO RUMORS

Lining up the Pirates’ rotation the rest of the way

Monday was the last off day of the regular season for the Pirates. With only thirteen games left, I think we’re at the point where we can reasonably look forward and see what the rotation could look like the rest of the way — since that will be a growing topic as the Wild Card game approaches. The Bucs still have to get there, of course, but let’s take a look at how things...

Liriano strikes out 12 batters to slide Pirates past Phillies

Frankie wants the ball. The Pirates might soon have to decide who to start in the opening game of their postseason. Francisco Liriano is looking like a strong candidate for that assignment for the second year in a row. Liriano's strong second half continued Thursday in the Pirates' 4-1 win over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. He looked like the Liriano of last season...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs – Game 141

That game was literally the most boring **** I’ve ever seen.  I’d rather watch this. Just watch that!  It’s amazing what we liked. Seriously though, even without the delays that game was draaaaaaagin’. Hopefully the rest of it is performed more expediently. Francisco Liriano is going for his fourth win of the season. Fourth. In September. Yup, it’s been like that....

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 […]

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,...

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...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Possible playoff rotation

Francisco Liriano (Courtesy DAVID DENOMA/REUTERS) The Pittsburgh Pirates have been carried most of the season by their pitching, especially the starting rotation. The majority of their starters have performed well this year. Even injuries could not bring down the rotation thanks to the depth options. With the end of the season approaching, the Pirates have their best starters going...

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...
