Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano pitched lasts only five innings Saturday.
Insight: He was on fire of late, but did not have it today. Liriano gave up four runs (three earned) on five hits and five walks, while striking out five. His 2014 season finishes off with a 7-10 record and a 3.38 ERA and 1.30 WHIP.
 
Hot9/22/2014 10:14:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano pitched six shutout innings as Pittsburgh inched closer to a playoff berth with a 1-0 victory over the Braves.
Insight: Liriano struggled with his control for a second straight start, walking four batters, but he allowed just three hits and struck out seven. Liriano is just 7-10 but has a 3.32 ERA and 170 strikeouts in 157 1/3 innings this year.
 
Hot9/18/2014 2:02:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano allowed one run in six innings as Pittsburgh defeated Boston, 9-1, on Wednesday.
Insight: Liriano struggled with his control, walking five batters but he only allowed three hits and struck out two. Liriano's scoreless inning streak did come to an end when Bryce Brentz scored on a groundout. The scoreless inning streak ended at 20.
 
Hot9/17/2014 10:14:00 AM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano looks to continue his hot play tonight against Boston.
Insight: He is a major reason why Pittsburgh is likely to make the postseason. After beginning the season in dreadful fashion, Liriano has been unreal over the past month (2-0 with 0.67 ERA and 0.96 WHIP). Look for that trend to continue the rest of the season.
 
9/6/2014 9:13:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano pitched well for a third straight start to win his fourth game of the season as the Pirates shut out the Cubs, 5-0.
Insight: Liriano allowed seven earned runs against Atlanta on Aug. 18, but has yielded just two earned runs in his last 19 innings. The story of Liriano's season, however, is his inability to receive enough run support to win games. His record is 4-10, but he has a respectable 3.74 ERA and 149 strikeouts in 137 1/3 innings this year.
 
8/31/2014 8:46:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano pitched seven innings, allowed two runs and earned a no-decision against the Reds on Sunday.
Insight: Liriano made just one mistake to Chris Heisey, who hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning. Liriano keeps running into tough opposing pitchers as Johnny Cueto threw eight innings to earn the victory. Despite the fact Liriano's ERA is nearly a run higher than last season's, he is pitching better than his record (3-10) indicates.
 
8/25/2014 10:37:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano bounced back from his worst start of the season with six scoreless innings Monday against St. Louis.
Insight: Liriano allowed nine runs (seven earned) on 10 hits in four innings against the Braves in his last start. Even with that start included, the left-hander has recorded a 2.81 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in his last 48 innings.
 
8/19/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano gave up nine runs (seven earned) on 10 hits and three walks in four innings Tuesday against Atlanta.
Insight: Liriano gave up two runs or less in each of his previous six starts and hadn't allowed more than three since May 25. The left-hander is 3-10 with a 4.18 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP, but he also has 127 Ks in 118 1/3 innings.
 
7/23/2014 10:00:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano has allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits in his last 12 innings to lower his ERA from 4.72 to 4.18.
Insight: Liriano has the lowest contact rate in baseball (minimum 80 innings) this season, but he's struggled with walks (4.79 BB/9).
 
7/9/2014 5:52:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano (oblique) will Sunday against the Reds, according to Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Liriano strained his oblique on June 10. The left-hander has gone 1-6 with a 4.60 ERA this season after going 16-8 with a 3.02 ERA a year ago. Vance Worley will move to the bullpen.
 
7/8/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano (oblique) will start one of Pittsburgh's games against the Reds from July 11-13, according to Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Liriano strained his oblique on June 10. The left-hander has gone 1-6 with a 4.60 ERA this season after going 16-8 with a 3.02 ERA a year ago.
 
6/11/2014 3:18:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano (oblique) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Liriano left Tuesday's start with soreness in his side. He's had a miserable year, going 1-6 with a 4.60 ERA, and it just got worse.
 
6/10/2014 9:13:00 PM
Description: Pirates lefty Francisco Liriano left Tuesday's start with oblique discomfort.
Insight: Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporter Dejan Kovacevic suggested that Liriano (1-6, 4.60 ERA) could be placed on the disabled list. It's bad news for a Pittsburgh rotation already without one of its best starters (Gerrit Cole was placed on the DL Sunday with shoulder fatigue).
 
Cold6/10/2014 8:20:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Francisco Liriano exited Tuesday's start against the Cubs prior to the fourth inning, according to Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Liriano appeared to be in some discomfort and left after stretching and throwing a few warm-up pitches. Liriano was excellent last season, going 16-8 with a 3.02 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP, but this year he's 1-6 with a 4.60 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.
 
Cold6/4/2014 9:44:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Francisco Liriano allowed just one hit in five innings Wednesday at San Diego, but he walked six and allowed three runs (two earned).
Insight: Liriano has thrown 100+ pitches in each of the last two starts without making it through the sixth inning. The left-hander walked 3.52 batters per nine innings last year but has issued 4.67 free passes per nine in 2014. He hasn't thrown more than 5 2/3 innings in a start since May 14 and now has a 4.54 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP and a 73/36 K/BB in 69 1/3 innings.
 
Cold5/20/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Francisco Liriano gave up six runs on nine hits in five innings Tuesday against the Orioles.
Insight: Liriano hasn't been the same pitcher he was in 2013. His BB/9 is up from 3.52 to 4.02 and he's allowed seven homers in 53 2/3 innings after giving up just nine in 161 innings last season. He's 0-4 with a 4.86 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.
 
5/9/2014 10:42:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Francisco Liriano has walked two or more batters in all eight starts this season.
Insight: Liriano (0-3, 4.64 ERA) issued four free passes and allowed three runs on five hits in five innings Friday against St. Louis. The left-hander walked more than 5.00 batters per nine innings in 2012 and 2013, but he walked 3.52 per nine in 2013 and went 16-8 with a 3.02 ERA.
 
4/26/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Francisco Liriano exited Saturday's game with flu-like symptoms. SOURCE: Bill Brink, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Insight: Stolmy Pimentel relieved Liriano in the third inning. Despite a respectable 3.97 ERA in six starts, Liriano is still winless on the season. Consider him day-to-day.
 
3/31/2014 9:42:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Francisco Liriano took a no decision Monday against the Cubs despite throwing six shutout innings with 10 strikeouts.
Insight: Jeff Samardzija was fantastic for the other side and the Pirates ended up winning 1-0 in 10 innings. Monday's results are exactly what we want to see from Liriano early in the season. He had a 3.02 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP and 163 Ks in 161 innings in 2013 but put up an ERA above five in three of the previous four years.
 
3/27/2014 5:53:00 PM
Description: According to mlb.com, the Pirates move to send pitcher Brandon Cumpton to the minors on Thursday is an indication that Francisco Liriano (groin) has received the green light to start on Opening Day.
Insight: Liriano left his last start due to left groin tightness, but he was able to throw a successful simulated game Wednesday. The lefty resurrected his career with a 16-8 record, a 3.02 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP and 163 strikeouts in 161 innings last season after posting an ERA north of five in 2009, 2011 and 2012 with the Twins.
