Pirates left-hander Francisco Liriano took a major step in his recovery from a broken right arm yesterday, throwing three scoreless innings in a minor-league rehab start at high Single-A.
Liriano gave up zero hits and zero walks while striking out six, with at least two more rehab outings on tap until he’s cleared to join the Pirates’ rotation.
Liriano initially signed a two-year, $12.75 million contract with the Pirates in December, but the deal hadn’t officially been finalized when he suffered a broken non-pitching arm banging on a door in his house in an effort to scare his kids on Christmas Day. Pittsburgh renegotiated the deal to lower the guaranteed money to $1 million, with the rest available in incentives.
