LHP Liriano, Pirates wrap up deal

The SportsXchange

Left-hander Francisco Liriano and the Pittsburgh Pirates have finalized their agreement on a two-year, $12.75 million deal.

The two sides had struck a deal in December, but it was put on hold after Lirano, 29, broke his right arm, reportedly during a fall in a bathroom. He passed a physical this week to make the agreement official, according to Fox Sports.

The revised contract makes Liriano, a seven-year major-league veteran who isn't expected to be ready to pitch by opening day, assume more risk.

The hard-throwing Liriano pitched for the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox last season, posting a combined 5.34 ERA. Since 2010, he has struck out 480 batters in 483 innings.
