Gardenhire: 'We've got to figure out something.' Liriano: 'I'm ready'

Yeah, those quotes are taken from separate stories currently on the Twins website.

This article discusses the team's frustration after getting swept in New York. The Twins were outscored 25-7 by the Yankees in a three-game mauling. And this slightly shorter story provides a few details on Francisco Liriano's most recent dominant outing for Triple-A Rochester. He struck out 10, walked two, and allowed just two hits in seven scoreless innings.

In his last five starts, Liriano has given up only one earned run while striking out 42 batters in 35 innings.

Alas, according to the report linked above, "while the Twins have acknowledged Liriano's recent success and have been pleased with his results, the feeling is that there is no room currently in Minnesota's rotation for him." If you own Liriano in an International League-only format, you're obviously thrilled.

Livan Hernandez (5.29 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, 3.3 K/9) gets the start for the Twins tonight on Friday in Cleveland.
