And his value plummets for next year. In a non-keeper, Liriano shouldn't even by on your draft sheet IMO.

I'm not sure if you guys caught this on ESPN but it's sort of funny listening to Dusty talk about young pitchers and rehab... Then again, he must be an expert by now.

Wow. I'm so totally not bailing on Liriano just because of this. I realize he's had history of arm problems, but that doesn't mean he's Mark Prior. The Twins haven't rode his arm the way the Cubs road Mark Prior's. Quite the opposite, in fact; they've been pretty cautious, starting him out in the bullpen and whatnot.

It wouldn't surprise me to see him have periodic injuries limiting him, but he's still one of the few young SPs worth a top 10 round pick next season.

if he doesn't have surgery, sure.

How long will they keep this up before going that route, though?

How many of us keep this guy or pick him early next year only to see his elbow pain continue through spring training and then surgery is decided on?

I'm having a hard time convincing myself to keep him right now, even if he doesn't have surgery. I'll probably hate myself for it later.

I think he is in worse shape than Prior IMO. At least Prior made it through a full season before the injury problems started.

Liriano ran into Marcus Giles too? interesting.
Liriano tweaked his achilles while doing wind sprints also? interesting.

Fortunately, we all have time to consider what to do about him as a keeper, but if you had to make the decision today, it does not look good.
