Ha, but I assume 90% probability that he'll find the DL this year and from here on out. Whether or not Liriano
is effective is kind of a moot point in relation to Harden.
I'd also like to see how Liriano
does throwing his slider as it's his most effective pitch besides throwing the heat. That'll be key to seeing how close to form he can get as well as staying healthy. Liriano
in the 8th sounds like a massive stretch, but I think it's fine to bite in the 13th round once the likes of Billingsley and McGowan are off the board.
