Pirates' Francisco Liriano: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano's contract was purchased Thursday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

This was a formality, as it was reported last week that Liriano had made the team. He will work in mid-leverage situations, getting plenty of work against left-handed hitters.

Pirates' Francisco Liriano: Will pitch in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite an inconsistent spring, Liriano will make the team's Opening Day roster, John Perrotto of DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

With nine walks in 9.1 Grapefruit League innings, Liriano has struggled with his control. Even so, the Pirates will give the 35-year-old a chance to pitch out of the bullpen. Liriano has compiled a 5.03 ERA in 230.2 innings since 2017 and isn't expected to pitch in high leverage situations.

Pirates' Francisco Liriano: Day of reckoning coming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates are expected to inform Liriano whether he has made the Opening Day roster Saturday, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

He's pitched progressively worse throughout the spring, allowing five runs with an 8:9 K:BB in 9.1innings. If Liriano doesn't make the team, the Pirates will likely release him because they would have to pay him a $100,000 bonus if they sent him to Triple-A. Rule 5 pick Nick Burdi has outpitched Liriano and may take the final bullpen spot.

Pirates' Francisco Liriano: Unable to find strike zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano walked all four batters he faced against the Yankees on Sunday.

The left-hander struggled with a 4.9 BB/9 in 133.2 innings for Detroit last season. The Pirates will likely give Liriano a longer leash than other teams, given his past success with the organization, but he'll need to throw strikes in his next couple outings.

Pirates' Francisco Liriano: Hurls clean inning Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Liriano pitched a scoreless fourth inning Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Pittsburgh signed the 35-year-old to serve as a reliever earlier in February. Liriano started in 26 of his 27 appearances with Detroit last season, limiting batters to a .221/.316/.319 slash line the first time through the order. Opponents hit .270/.380/.494 the second time around, however. If the team's other fifth starter options fail, it wouldn't be surprising to see Liriano get another chance in the rotation, considering his track record of success with the Bucs.
