In late December, the Pirates and Francisco Liriano agreed to a two-year, $12.75 million contract. Then it was revealed that Liriano suffered an injury to his right (non-throwing) arm in December, putting the deal in jeopardy. Now, however, there is a resolution.
Ken Rosenthal reports that Liriano agreed to reduce his salary in the first year of the deal in the event he misses time due to the injury to the right arm. If the injury doesn’t cause him to spend any time on the disabled list, he’ll collect the full $12.75 million.
