Pirates' Francisco Liriano: Fails to end skid with poor outing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano (4-7) pitched five innings, allowing four runs on six hits while walking three and striking out six in a no-decision against the Giants on Wednesday.

Liriano continues to disappoint owners, tossing another lackluster game and remaining winless in his last five starts. The veteran has been hampered by control issues throughout the campaign, and now owns an alarming 86:52 K:BB through 78 innings (14 starts). In his first three seasons with the Pirates, Liriano posted a cool 3.26 ERA, but this year, his fourth with the club, he owns an unsightly 5.17 ERA.

Pirates' Francisco Liriano: Drops fourth consecutive decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano (4-7) gave up six hits, four earned runs and five walks over 5.2 innings in Friday's 6-0 loss to the Cubs. He struck out six.

Despite notching 12 swinging strikes, Liriano had considerable trouble with location overall, and notched first-pitch strikes on only 12 of 30 hitters. He also hit Anthony Rizzo twice, and his five free passes matched a season high. The loss was the fourth straight for the 32-year-old southpaw, who also saw his ERA climb to 5.03 and his WHIP reach an unsightly 1.62. Liriano has lost six of his last seven starts overall, and will try to stop the bleeding next Wednesday versus the Giants.

Pirates' Francisco Liriano: Losses sixth game due to one bad inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano (4-6) allowed four runs (one earned) on four hits, struck out eight and walked three in a 5-1 loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

Nothing seems to be going right for the 32-year-old left-hander. Liriano's biggest problem is not as many hitters are swinging and missing on his pitches outside the zone. He came into Saturday with an overall 10.2 percent swinging-strike rate, which is 4.0 percent lower than his swing-and-miss rate last year. On Saturday, he induced 16 swinging-strikes, but a wild pitch, passed ball and then a three-run homer in the fifth unhinged his start. Homers have been another issue, as he is allowing more than 1.0 HR/9 than last year. He will try to correct these problems in his next outing on Friday versus the Cubs.

Pirates' Francisco Liriano: Start pushed back to Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano's next start has been pushed to Saturday against the Cardinals, Alan Sanders of the Associated Press reports.

With the Pirates needing six starters in the span of five days thanks to Tuesday's doubleheader, Jameson Taillon will be recalled to start Wednesday, giving the struggling Liriano a couple extra days rest. While Liriano has had a rough go of things this year against most teams, he has a 1.38 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 13 innings against the Cardinals this year, so hopefully he can continue his success against the Red Birds this weekend.

Pirates' Francisco Liriano: No plans to bypass rotation turn
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Pirates have no plans to skip the struggling Liriano in the rotation, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports. "He's not been the guy we're used to, but we're also thinking he's not that far away," GM Neal Huntington said Sunday.

Liriano leads the major leagues with 38 walks (in 61.2 innings). "When Francisco is working ahead in the count, he's getting hitters into swing mode," Huntington said. "That's the pitcher that's been so effective for us. When it's ball one and ball two, hitters are able to eliminate his weapons." The lefty allowed six earned runs at PNC Park on Saturday, after previously giving up four earned runs combined in four home starts. His next matchup comes against a Mets team that struggles against southpaws. If Liriano can find some semblance of control, he could rebound quickly.
