Liriano headed to DL

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby ZFever » Thu Aug 10, 2006 10:11 pm

An MRI showed that Francisco Liriano has a mild chronic strain of his ulnar collateral ligament, and a clinical exam revealed weakness and stiffness in his shoulder that is causing the soreness in his forearm near his elbow. His status for the rest of the season is uncertain.

This is exactly why we didn't have Liriano as one of the game's top 5-10 prospects entering the season; the talent was obvious, but he was always at very high risk for additional arm problems. Twins physician Dr. John Steubs said Thursday night that he was "optimistic, but not totally confident" that Liriano would pitch again in 2006. The Twins are going to be cautious, even if it means sabotaging their wild-card chances

I would never do that deal. Chavez is not all that great, and if Liriano comes back for September, 30 innings of Liriano will be worth more then two months of Eric Chavez.

I have Liriano and he is not going anywhere, just to my DL spot. I have Clemens, I'm ok.

If the Twins weren't in the playoff race or falls completely out of it, then I guess they would shut him down. Right now they just gotta be careful with him.
