Pirates' Liriano draws Opening Day start for second straight year
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle announced Tuesday starting pitcher Francisco Liriano will start Opening Day (April 6) against the Reds. It will be the second straight year Liriano starts on opening day for Pittsburgh.

Hurdle also announced Tuesday starting pitcher Gerrit Cole will start the second game of the season and A.J. Burnett will finish off the three-game series before Pittsburgh moves onto a three-game series at Milwaukee.

Hurdle added Vance Worley or Jeff Locke, who are competing for the final spot in the team's rotation, will start the fourth game of the season and Charlie Morton will start the fifth game. Hurdle said splitting up Burnett and Morton was important because they have similar pitching styles.

Pirates' Liriano showing off better health this spring
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano is glad to be healthy this spring, according to MLB.com.

Liriano had an abbreviated run in camp last season due to arm and groin injuries. Now that he's healthy, he's looking forward to working on his craft. In Thursday's start, Liriano looked good. He allowed two hits over two scoreless innings. Lirano walked one and struck out two during the outing. 

Afterward, Liriano said his goal was to work on his fastball. "Working on throwing the fastball in and out, and so far so good," Liriano said. "It feels a little weird, facing hitters back in a real game, but it was good to get the first one out of the way."

Manager Clint Hurdle came away impressed. "Liriano showed a good finish to his fastball, and got the ball inside. He also threw some good changeups and sliders," he said.

Liriano, 31, posted a 3.38 ERA over 162 1/3 innings last season.

Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano: 'I wanted to stay here'
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano is glad to be back in Pittsburgh, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. 

Liriano expressed a desire to remain with the club, though he also admitted the Pirates offered him the best deal this offseason. "I got a better deal here than the other teams," he said. "It just feels like home here."

Liriano said both the Royals and Astros, among other teams, offered him three-year deals, but he opted to return to the Pirates. Part of the reason for that was because Liriano has a strong relationship with pitching coach Ray Searage. 

As for this season, Liriano is just hoping to stay healthy. A groin injury and strained oblique set him back at the beginning of last year, limiting his numbers in the first half. Liriano managed to improve in the second half, posting a 2.20 ERA. "I’m trying to find a way to stay healthy," he said. "That’s my goal right now, just stay healthy."

The 31-year-old posted a 3.38 ERA over 162 1/3 innings last year.
