MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Francisco Liriano has heard plenty about Cy Young during a spectacular rookie season.
Now that he is out for the rest of the season, another pitcher might be entering the conversation — Tommy John.
Ouch. Liriano seemed fine until the third, when suddenly, he said, “I felt a pop and it really hurts.”
The Twins lost last night. This morning, they’re a game and a half up from the White Sox in the wild card race, and a game and a half behind the Tigers in the AL Central.
Liriano? Done for the season.
