Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Returning to successful form
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Liriano, under the guidance of Toronto pitching coach Pete Walker, has worked on adjusting his release point to match what he'd done during his most successful years in Pittsburgh, SB Nation reports.

Much of Liriano's late-season success last year in Toronto (after being acquired from Pittsburgh) was attributed to him reuniting with Russell Martin, but there may be a better explanation. After two strong seasons, the southpaw struggled early in 2016 before being traded north of the border. Liriano and Walker identified a mechanical flaw that had the veteran opening his front shoulder too much and leaving his throwing arm hanging out to dry. A correction was made to have Liriano keep his front side closed, and the 33-year-old ran off a stretch of four quality starts to end 2016. Liriano's 4.69 ERA and 8-13 record from 2016 may lead many owners to undervalue him in upcoming drafts, but there are indicators that would suggest he may be back to the dominant form he displayed in his first two seasons with Pittsburgh (2014-15).

Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano (concussion) has been cleared and is available out of the bullpen Saturday, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.

This was anticipated, and it gives the Blue Jays a quality left-handed arm with the potential to log multiple innings out of the bullpen going forward in the ALCS.

Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Listed on ALCS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano (head) is listed on the Blue Jays' ALCS roster, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Liriano has progressed well through his rehab from a concussion sustained during the ALDS, so he'll rejoin Toronto's playoff roster as expected. The left-hander is on track to return to the Blue Jays bullpen by Game 2.

Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: On track to return for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Liriano's (head) bullpen session Thursday went off with no issues and he is on track to return for Game 2 of the ALCS, John Lott of Vice Sports reports.

Liriano's expected return for Game 2 is a major boon for the Blue Jays' staff. He'll face an Indians club that had a league-average OPS against southpaws on the season at .748. Liriano can be used as a long reliever should one of Toronto's starters fail to make it deep into the game.

Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Expects to be available for ALCS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano (concussion) expects to be activated from the disabled list Saturday when first eligible, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.

Liriano was removed from the Blue Jays' ALDS roster and placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list after being struck by a line drive last Friday, and it appears that will be the extent of his absence. Liriano will not be available for Game 1 of the ALCS on Friday, but barring any setbacks, he should be able to pitch if needed during the remainder of the series.
