It is a long season and trying to rush that schedule with a pitcher who is rehabbing is counter productive. If right, Liriano could be the missing link for our Rotation for 2013 and beyond.so there is no reason to rush and much of this is psychological in that the AAA games are like exhibitions, whereas the games at the MLB Level are for real – patience.

You could use Gomez as Liriano’s caddy for the middle innings.

Gomez stated that he was good for about 75 pitches. Why not use Liriano and keep Gomez in his current role? What’s the big difference here between Indy and the PBC?
