Player Notes
Francisco Liriano (oblique) will return to the Pirates' starting rotation Sunday against the Reds.

Advice: Liriano wound up missing a month with a strained left oblique. He made a dominant rehab start Monday at Triple-A Indianapolis, fanning eight batters and allowing only three hits over six scoreless innings. Vance Worley has been moved to the Pittsburgh bullpen.

Francisco Liriano (oblique) will return to the Pirates' starting rotation this weekend versus the Reds.

Advice: Liriano was fantastic in his rehab debut Monday at Triple-A Indianapolis, striking out eight batters and yielding only three hits over six scoreless innings against the Phillies' Triple-A team. The left-hander has been out since June 11 with a strained oblique.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle on Thursday didn't want to commit to a timetable for Francisco Liriano (oblique) beyond Monday's rehab start with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Advice: Liriano is expected to get his pitch count up to around 85, so he'd probably be physically ready to rejoin the Pirates' rotation after that. However, Hurdle will wait to see how the lefty looks Monday before committing to anything. "I don't want to get in front of us," Hurdle explained. "I want to make sure that we're good with him and give him the time, the mound time that he needs to get confidence back in his body, his arm, his delivery and all those things. I think we'll just continue to take it one outing at a time and get his feedback as we continue to push forward."

Francisco Liriano (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

Advice: He's set for five innings and/or 85 pitches. The Pirates had been considering bringing Liriano back without a rehab assignment, but obviously they've decided against it. He might only require just the one rehab start since he'll get his pitch count up pretty high Monday, so a return before the end of the first half is possible.

Francisco Liriano (oblique) threw a successful four-inning simulated game on Wednesday afternoon.

Advice: "[There] seem to be no complications," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said after the workout. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow and we'll map out something, probably eventually a rehab assignment." Liriano has been on the disabled list since June 11 with a strained oblique. He might be out through the All-Star break, depending on how many rehab starts the Bucs ask him to make.
