Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Stellar in final start of regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano dished 6.1 scoreless innings, allowing six hits and one walk while striking out 10 Orioles in Wednesday's no-decision.

In his final start of the regular season, the 32-year-old notched his highest strikeout total since being traded to the Blue Jays in early August. Following Liriano's move north of the border, the veteran managed a 3.35 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 43 innings, versus a 5.46 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 113.2 innings with the Pirates. Liriano finished strong, notching quality starts in his last four outings of 2016, but was victimized by little run support and blown saves. If the Jays can crack the playoffs, it appears Liriano is primed for an October run.

Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Stellar through six innings in blowout win Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano (2-2) fired six scoreless innings of three-hit ball against the Yankees in Friday's 9-0 victory, issuing two walks and striking out six.

The veteran southpaw turned in a vintage performance, firing 64 of his 100 pitches for strikes and notching 14 swinging strikes overall. Liriano has posted three straight quality starts, giving up only four earned runs and recording 16 strikeouts in the 18.1 innings over that span. He'll look to finish out the season in strong form when he faces the Orioles next Wednesday.

Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Loses despite quality start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano allowed four runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks across six innings Saturday versus the Angels. He struck out four as he suffered his 13th loss of the season.

Liriano's cause wasn't aided by his defense on Saturday, as the Jays committed three errors, including one that led to a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the sixth before he exited the game. Liriano has pitched better since Toronto began deploying a six-man rotation, but he seems liklier to move to the bullpen for the remainder of the season than he is to continue starting.

Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Possibly moving to bullpen for good
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Liriano may be moved to the bullpen for the final two weeks of the regular season, MLB.com reports.

Toronto went with a six-man rotation for most of August, but the club has since placed Liriano and R.A. Dickey in the bullpen for brief stints. With just two weeks remaining in the regular season, one of these two hurlers will have to bite the bullet as the team aligns their starting rotation for the final push. Liriano seems like a more suitable option for bullpen duties than the veteran knuckleballer Dickey, but nothing is set in stone just yet. Dickey tossed five scoreless innings in Friday's victory over the Angels, and Liriano is on the bump Saturday. Owners can expect the team to make a formal decision following the weekend series.

Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Slips in seventh inning of quality start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Liriano pitched 6.1 innings, allowing two runs on three hits while walking one and striking out six in a no-decision Monday against the Rays.

For the most part, Liriano was outstanding in his first start since Aug. 26, throwing 71 percent of his pitches for strikes while inducing an impressive 13 swinging strikes. The southpaw had allowed just one hit while striking out six over the first six innings Monday, but things quickly came undone when Liriano opened the seventh frame by allowing back-to-back homers to even the score at 2-2. In five starts since being acquired from the Pirates, the 32-year-old is 1-1 with a 3.72 ERA. Most of the damage done to Liriano as a Jays' starter has been a result of surrendering five homers over 29 innings (1.6 HR/9). He's scheduled to make his next start Saturday versus the Angels.
