Liriano to White Sox

Postby converge241 » Sat Jul 28, 2012 11:06 pm

The White Sox tried hard to land Zack Greinke before he went to the Angels, so they instead turned to a familiar foe to shore up the rotation. The team announced (on Twitter) that they have acquired Francisco Liriano for Eduardo Escobar and Pedro Hernandez, the team announced.

I had the same thought. It doesnt seem like a very good return for a pretty good pitcher who has been pitching pretty well. Its a bit surprising that he was traded intradivision as well.

Having another lefty should help Chris Sale out with some more rest. Hopefully Don Cooper can help him like he did with Matt Thornton, Bobby Jenks, Jose Contreas and Gavin Floyd.

Sales is getting temporarily shut down indefinitely. While Liriano should help Sales get more rest, I'm not sold on a feast-or-famine type of guy like Liriano for a stretch run. Kenny Williams has guts, I'll tell you that. He didn't give up much. But still, someone a bit more dependable would have been a better pick-up for the White Sox. Dempster would be a good fit, but I can't see the North Siders trading with their counterparts down South.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said his team will go to a six-man rotation in the short-term.

I recall they went to the six man a few years ago and it seemed to work pretty well; the extra rest could help all of their starters. The downside from a fantasy perspective is that they'll just about never have two starts in a week.

Yahoo has Sale starting Monday against KC; ESPN has him Tuesday. I'd have to think they're keeping his fatigue in mind with the decision to go to six. Still, I'd also have to think that Humber and possibly Quintana are on a pretty short leash to stay in the rotation now.
