Liriano, who threw a no-hitter against the White Sox on Tuesday, was originally scheduled to pitch against the Red Sox on Monday night. Nick Blackburn will now make the start in his place while Liriano will start Tuesday’s series opener against the Tigers.
Liriano threw a season-high 123 pitches in Tuesday’s no-hitter, so pushing him back in the starting rotation isn’t the worst idea, anyway. Keep in mind that he hadn’t exceeded 100 pitches in any of his previous five starts.
