He will...it's been one week. Pick him up and wait, it will happen but not right away.

He's looked great so far in his relief outings. I'm actually watching Lohse's starts to see if they are bad enough to give Liriano a spot in the rotation.

As an added bonus, while you are holding onto him, you can get 7 Ks in 4.1 innings. It will only be a matter of time until he cracks the rotation and puts up above average numbers with potential for Felix Hernandez numbers from last year.

Bottom line: Quickly add him.

With Liriano it's only a matter of time before he's in the rotation. They won't be able to ignore the beating Kyle Loshe is going to be going through.

The only way Liriano is getting into the rotation anytime soon is if there is an injury or lohse gets traded. The twins dont want to take Liriano out of the pen anytime soon b/c hes the only lefty. So look for Lohse to be dealt to the first team that is willing to take on most of his salary and liriano to be moved to the rotation around june or july at the latest.

because they have

Santana-better
Radke-better
Silva-better
Lohse-decent
Baker-decent

They want to slow him into it, is there anything wrong with it? :-?

This makes a lot of sense. Do they have anyone in AAA that they could bring up to fill his spot in the bullpen?
