Jon Morosi has an update on the Pittsburgh Pirates and Francisco Liriano:
#Pirates and Francisco Liriano still talking, source says, after injury issue arose and put two-year agreement on hold.

Liriano was a risk on a two-year deal prior to his recent injury. I’m not sure that the recent injury would do much to change that. It would only serve as a reminder that he could be considered injury prone. It seems that the deal is in limbo right now, with no guarantees either way.
Earlier this week I wrote about some options for the Pirates if the deal fell through.
