Pirates | Francisco Liriano as chilly as weather

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 18:02:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano is 5-17 with a 5.84 ERA in the month of April during his career, and he attributes the cold weather to his traditionally slow starts. "Yeah, Aprils have been difficult for me," Liriano said Tuesday, April 22. "It's just the cold. My speed usually isn't there until it gets warmer and I feel looser. And I don't have a good feel for the ball on breaking balls."

There is something to that, as he has a 7-12 record with a 5.48 ERA in September when the weather turns cool, but a 57-36 mark from May 1 through August 31 in his career, with the highest ERA of any month at 4.04 during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Based on those career numbers, fantasy owners would be wise to try and buy low on Liriano. The weather is about to heat up in the Steel City, and trends show that Liriano is about to heat up as well.
