From Yahoo! Game notes:

Game Notes

MINNESOTA PITCHER FRANCISCO LIRIANO HAS LEFT THE GAME IN THE THIRD INNING WITH AN APPARENT RIGHT ELBOW INJURY.

CORRECTION: MINNESOTA PITCHER FRANCISCO LIRIANO HAS LEFT THE GAME IN THE THIRD INNING WITH AN APPARENT LEFT ELBOW INJURY.


Yahoo! is halarious sometimes. :*)

Also from Yahoo!

Sep 13 Liriano appeared to re-injure his pitching elbow in Wednesday's start against the A's, leaving the game in the third inning.
Recommendation: The injury appeared to occur on a pitch to the A's Bobby Kielty, and Liriano left immediately after. The Twins had previously said they'd shut down Liriano for the season if he had any setback in his comeback from a chronic strain of his ulnar collateral ligament. So even if this isn't a worst-case scenario, this is probably his last appearence in 2006.


They should probably just shut him down for next season, I hate to say.

He had an MRI done immediately following the game and we're still awaiting the results. Tommy John has been mentioned.

From ESPN:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Francisco Liriano has heard plenty about Cy Young during a spectacular rookie season.

Now that he is out for the rest of the season, another pitcher might be entering the conversation -- Tommy John.

Liriano's highly anticipated return to the Minnesota rotation came to a sudden halt because of elbow problems Wednesday and Dan Haren pitched eight shutout innings, leading the Oakland Athletics over the Twins 1-0.

"Obviously he won't be pitching again," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Something is in there bothering and continuing to stop him. ... Obviously when he gets in game and puts a little extra torque in there, something is not right. We have to make sure we stop it and do what we have to do."

There goes my title this year as I started Liriano over Penny and there goes his keeper value as well.
