Pirates | Francisco Liriano registers his third win

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 16:11:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out six batters over seven innings during Pittsburgh's 5-2 win over the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Liriano ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) now has allowed three runs or fewer in nine of 11 starts, and his ERA is down to 3.24 after his outing Wednesday. With the Pirates surging up the standings, Liriano should be viewed as a second-tier starter in FantasyScore contests. He is up to 81 strikeouts over 66 2/3 innings this season, too.

Pirates | Francisco Liriano better on road

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 11:32:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano has a 1.57 ERA in 34 1/3 innings on the road this year as opposed to a 6.04 ERA in 25 1/3 frames at home in 2015. Liriano has allowed one run in 12 innings in his last two starts combined.

Fantasy Tip: That bodes well for Liriano ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) today on FantasyScore while throwing in pitcher-friendly San Fran. Plus, the Gigantes are resting several regulars such as Hunter Pence, Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford. Liriano is a fine option in daily games today.

Pirates | Francisco Liriano fans 11 in no-decision

Sat, 30 May 2015 06:48:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano struck out 11 batters over six scoreless innings during his no-decision against the San Diego Padres Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Punchouts haven't been a problem for Liriano ($6,500, 13.0% of cap), as it was the second consecutive game he reached double-digit strikeouts and the third time this season. He currently sports an 11.3 K/9, and with solid ratios (3.37 ERA, 1.09 WHIP), the win column projects to receive tallies more frequently going forward.

Pirates | Francisco Liriano a hard-luck loser

Wed, 13 May 2015 21:13:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano allowed just three runs and six hits with six strikeouts over seven innings in a loss Wednesday, May 14, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Liriano is 1-3, but he has a solid 2.96 ERA. The pitcher has been getting little run support despite pitching well. FantasyScore players still get solid value at $5,800 (or 11.6% of cap) thanks to his solid amount of strikeouts.

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 09:55:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano has a 4-2 record and 2.30 ERA in nine career starts against the Chicago Cubs, and he hasn't allowed more than two runs to them in any of his nine starts.

Pirates | Francisco Liriano's start pushed back

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 07:24:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano (personal) will not make his scheduled start Sunday, April 12, because his wife had a baby. His start has been pushed back to Wednesday, April 15. SP Casey Sadler will be the starting pitcher Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Sadler should only receive one start and return to the minor leagues. Owners in all leagues should not consider using him in their lineups.
