Francisco Liriano walks four straight in wild spring outing

Francisco Liriano walked four consecutive hitters and did not record an out in the Pirates' 6-5 spring loss to the Yankees. He was charged with three earned runs.

Fantasy Impact

Liriano walked four straight batters on 16 straight balls and gave New York a free run before getting the hook. Subsequent relievers allowed two of those free passes to score, making Liriano for three straight runs. When at his worst, this is the exact type of outing Liriano is capable of having. Pittsburgh likely brought him in for hopes of a reclamation project, but Liriano is fighting to stay on the team at this point.

Francisco Liriano has deal with Pirates

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports Francisco Liriano is in agreement with the Pirates on a new contract.

Fantasy Impact

The New York Post's Joel Sherman reports it's a minor league contract. Liriano appeared in 27 games (26 starts) for the Tigers last season, compiling 133 2/3 innings to go along with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. The 35-year-old had success in Pittsburgh a few years ago and will once again look to turn his career around with the Pirates.

Francisco Liriano closes season with loss

Francisco Liriano was removed from his final start of the season after 2 2/3 innings due to lower back stiffness. He allowed four runs on three hits and two walks, and struck out five in the outing.

Fantasy Impact

This was likely the last start the 34-year-old Liriano will make with Detroit, as he is set to become a free agent. There's always a market for lefties in MLB, but Liriano posted a 4.58 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in another injury-riddled season. Regardless of where he lands, he carries little to no fantasy value at this point in his career.

Francisco Liriano posts quality start in loss

Francisco Liriano was charged with four runs (one earned) in a loss to the Royals on Friday. He gave up six hits, issued two walks, and struck out four batters over six frames.

Fantasy Impact

The Tigers' defense is mostly to blame for this loss, as they registered three errors on the evening. Liriano will take a 4.40 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP into his final start of the year against the Twins. This being the last year of his contact, it will be anyone's guess where or if he's pitching next year, but his days of fantasy relevance have come and gone.

Francisco Liriano turns back the clock in Cleveland

Francisco Liriano picked up the win in Cleveland on Sunday; he allowed three runs on five hits over seven innings. He walked two and struck out seven batters.

Fantasy Impact

It was the fifth win of the season for the 13-year veteran southpaw. It's been a long time since he had any fantasy relevance, but it's nice to see him recapture some glory after what has been a pretty tough few years. This very well could be his swan song.
