Liriano is as ready as he's ever going to get, and it sounds like he'll finally get the call.
There are strong indications that Francisco Liriano could finally be on his way from Class AAA Rochester to replace Livan Hernandez in the rotation ... Liriano was scheduled to start tonight for Rochester, but it's said to be likely he won't make that start.
Ron Gardenhire has also indicated that the 24-year-old left-hander will not head to the bullpen when he arrives.
So rejoice, Liriano owners. The long, terrible reign of Livan Hernandez appears to be at an end. Finally. Until the Yankees sign him.
