Twins' Liriano still troubled by sore arm
Francisco Liriano was bothered by soreness in his left forearm during Monday's loss to the Tigers and might require a DL stint.
"It's a muscular problem -- as the game was going on, he started to feel it," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "We had him checked out before, and everything was fine, but we'll have him checked out again. It's muscles, not his elbow." Regardless, the Twins need to be very careful here. If Liriano tweaks his delivery to compensate, he could end up hurting himself worse. "It started bothering me in the second inning," Liriano said after the game. "It really bothered me. I couldn't throw fastball, changeup, slider or anything." With Liriano likely to miss more time, it now looks like a given that Matt Garza will debut this week. The Twins might also have to bring back Scott Baker. Aug. 7 - 11:38 pm et
He didn't look very good/confident on the mound.
