Player Notes
Pirates re-signed LHP Francisco Liriano to a three-year, $39 million contract.

Advice: The deal was reported on Tuesday and is now official after Liriano passed a physical. It's a deal that should work out well for the Pirates as long as Liriano stays health, as the left-hander has posted a 3.20 ERA with 338 strikeouts across 323 1/3 innings over the last two seasons in Pittsburgh.

Robert Murray of MLB Daily Rumors reports that free agent starter Francisco Liriano has agreed to a three-year, $39 million contract with the Pirates.

Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has confirmed Murray's report. That's well beyond the typical comfort zone for the cost-conscious Pirates, but they had to buck up to bring back the 31-year-old left-hander, who was said to be drawing interest from a range of teams. Liriano has posted an excellent 3.20 ERA with 338 strikeouts in 323 1/3 innings over the last two seasons for Pittsburgh.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal confirms that the Pirates are working to re-sign free agent Francisco Liriano.

Advice: But the parameters of a deal aren't quite in place yet. Liriano is thought to be looking for a three- or four-year contract this winter worth at least $12 million annually. The 31-year-old left-hander registered a 3.20 ERA with 338 strikeouts in 323 1/3 innings the last two seasons for Pittsburgh. He is the Bucs' top priority.

LaVelle O'Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that the Twins remain interested in a reunion with free agent left-hander Francisco Liriano.

Advice: While the 31-year-old former ace of the Twins staff would certainly provide a major boost to their starting rotation, Neal believes it's unlikely that the Twins would be willing to surrender the draft pick compensation required to sign him. The Pirates have made re-signing Liriano one of their top priorities this winter.
