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.

Pirates | Wandy Rodriguez's timetable uncertain

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 18:02:23 -0700

The length of absence for Pittsburgh Pirates SP Wandy Rodriguez (knee) is unknown. He had fluid drained from his knee Monday, April 21, and he also had an MRI, but the results were not made known.

It depends on the guy. We'll just have to wait and see."

Pirates | Wandy Rodriguez to DL

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 12:14:35 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates placed SP Wandy Rodriguez (knee) on the 15-day disabled list with right knee inflammation Monday, April 21, and recalled RP Jared Hughes from Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy Tip: The Bucs could decide to call up Jeff Locke or Brandon Cumpton to replace Rodriguez in the starting rotation. It's unclear how serious Rodriguez's knee injury is, but it doesn't sound very serious. Locke or Cumpton would be short-term options for NL-only leagues. Stolmy Pimentel is an intriguing option, too, but is probably a secondary candidate.
