A lot of the season is going to rest on Francisco Liriano, who was the Comeback Player of the Year last season, putting together some great stats. He is working out right now to make sure that he is ready to take the mound for the first pitch of the season. He is not fully injured, per se, but felt a bit of tightness in his leg that he did not want to turn into an injury. He is currently scheduled to play a minor league game or a simulated game to test it out, and then he will know that he is ready to go.
