Liriano is done for the year

Doesn't seem like there have been any confirmed tests. Any chance he'll play in the post-season if the Twins make it? I've got a 15-1 Twins winning the world series bet that needs Liriano.

from espn

"Minnesota Twins fans can relax a little bit for the moment. Francisco Liriano's MRI shows no new structural damage to his left elbow, two sources told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Liriano's MRI results were very similar to the results from early August, which showed a mild tear of his ulnar collateral ligament, the paper reported."

he still might get a second opinion. Any thoughts on his value for next year?

I just read the same thing from a Minnesota news site I found on google. I guess value for next year would be on an individual basis, but I'd like to have him again but keeping in mind he could go down. He's worth the risk for me at least.

Sources told the Star Tribune that Wednesday's MRI on Francisco Liriano's elbow again showed a mild tear of his ulnar collateral ligament.

That's also what was found when he was originally injured last month. If the report is true, Liriano will probably avoid surgery, though the Twins have to be concerned that the UCL will completely blow out eventually. Tommy John surgery would become a must in that case. The Twins won't try bringing Liriano back this season.

TJ surgery ... 8-o

I think you mis-read the report...

The Twins need to refine his mechanics before they even think of putting him back in a game or the same things gonna happen again!

:-o

As a Liriano owner in a dynasty league I am breathing alot easier today!

I thought that he came back too fast, but an elbow injury is hard to predict on when it is ready and stable.
