When Liriano was healthy, he was easily one of the top 5 pitchers in all of baseball. I'm just curious as to how early you would look to draft him.

Some early season rankings that I've seen have him around 100-115 in mixed leagues.

In a ten team league that would put him in the 10-11th range. Would you go as early as an 8th rounder on him?

Just read a report that he has hit 97 mph, consistently at 92-95.

I got him w/ the 99th pick in the 9th round, but I missed that part of the draft.

I would. I have him rated #79 overall.

From all accounts he's in great shape and was hitting the high 90's with his fastball. I got him on my team in the 8th round. I fully expect him to be a bargain there too.
