Francisco Liriano

From his start yesterday. Only throwing “80%” he says. Notice his throwing elbow isn’t going above the level of the shoulders.

This is good news for Twins fans and for those of us who enjoyed watching him dominate in 2006. However, it is worth while to note that he was mostly in the upper 80’s in his last start as opposed to the mid to upper 90’s. While he did claim to be going at 80%, it is something to keep an eye on.

he pitches like Johan Santana

Actually, this arm action is safer than Johan’s.

Let’s see if he keeps it up. When Pedro was rehabbing, his elbow was much lower. However, when he started throwing in games, it went back up again.
