Liriano just left the Twins game vs. the A's in Minnesota with another apparent elbow injury. He was pitching lights out in his first game back from the DL, threw one pitch and immediately left the game. Very unfortunate for the Twins. Hurts their case for this year, and I can only hope that when throwing that pitch Liriano didn't tear something. Hate to see things like that happen. That's why I'm fine with shutting Bailey down this year. Liriano has a history of arm trouble and Bailey doesn't, but I'd still rather lean to the side of caution.
