Wed, 29 Jul 2015 19:55:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano allowed three runs - two earned - while scattering 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings in a win Wednesday, July 29, against the Minnesota Twins, his original MLB team. He also struck out four and did not walk any batters.

Fantasy Tip: Liriano ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) is unbeaten in three decisions over his past six starts dating back to June 20, allowing two or fewer earned runs in each of the six outings. He is a solid FantasyScore option, especially when the matchup is a favorable one.

Pirates | Francisco Liriano cleared for next start

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 14:39:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano (neck) passed all physical tests and was cleared to start against the Washington Nationals Thursday, July 23. He took an early flight back to Pittsburgh Wednesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Liriano ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) has a 2.98 ERA, 3.09 FIP, 1.03 WHIP and 9.8 K/9 for the season but only five wins. He has done his part on the mound, but his offense has left him out to dry a lot. Given his health, FantasyScore players should view the lefty as a risky start Thursday. Although, the Washington lineup is riddled with injuries.

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.
