Francisco Liriano

#47 / Pitcher / Minnesota Twins





Oct 26, 1983

Never blessed with great command, Liriano's velocity has dropped, he stopped getting groundballs, and his contact rate is shooting up towards the league average. I don't much care if he's only 25 years old - at this point, he's just a guy, and no matter who tries to tell you otherwise, the magic is gone. That can't be an easy pill for Twins fans to swallow, so hopefully they're able to get a little comfort from the shutout he's about to pitch. Mariners baseball!
