Can't decide between picking up either him or Cain for tomorrow's start. I can only get one, but I wanted to post the Liriano updates...
Sep 12 The Associated Press reports Minnesota Twins P Francisco Liriano will start for SP Johan Santana Wednesday, Sept. 14.
Sep 12 With Carlos Silva aggravating a knee injury that is likely to end his season, Liriano may have an opportunity to take a regular turn in the Minnesota rotation through the end of the season. The talented lefthander, acquired from San Francisco in the A.J. Pierzynski trade in November 2003, will get a chance to show his stuff in anticipation of competing for big league rotation spot next spring.
Advice: Liriano was 3-5 with a 3.64 in 13 starts at Double-A New Britain before putting it all together at Triple-A Rochester. There he was 9-2 with a 1.78 ERA and 112 strikeouts in 91 innings. He allowed just 56 hits and 24 walks. For the Twins, he has allowed just a solo home run and struck out five in two innings of work.
