Liriano - finally - signs to pitch with Pittsburgh

Posted by: Brian Stensaas under People Updated: February 8, 2013 - 11:58 PM

 

 

Another pitcher is (officially) off the Major League Baseball market. This one ending a month or so of uncertainty.

Francisco Liriano signed a one-year contract with Pittsburgh on Friday night according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, which reports the deal is for $1 million in 2013 but could bloat to $3.75 million. The team also has a vesting option for 2014.

Hang on .... the pre-holiday clouds are starting to part.

But ... didn't Liriano already have a deal with the Bucs? Well, yes and no.

The former Twins' lefty agreed to terms with the Pirates in late December. However, he then broke his right arm in a bathroom fall according to a newspaper in the Dominican Republic. That forced the Pirates to re-work the contract, and Liriano finally passed his physical on Friday - 48 days after the first agreement.
