Analysis: Liriano had a sub-3 ERA and 1.07 WHIP through his first six starts and tossed eight inning of one-hit ball in Seattle on May 20, but that start was sandwiched around a pair of five-run outings. The veteran lefty should really only be considered in deeper leagues with a favorable matchup.

Liriano allowed one hit, walked two and struck out three in the Tigers' 7-2 loss Tuesday. He worked out of a two-on, one-out jam in the first by striking out Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez. He induced a double-play grounder from Miguel Andujar to end the second.
Analysis: The Tigers agreed to a $4 million, one-year contract with Liriano on Feb. 23, giving the Tigers added pitching depth. The 34-year-old was 6-7 with a 4.62 ERA in 18 starts last season with Toronto and 20 relief appearances with World Series champion Houston, which acquired him at the July 31 trade deadline. He is 102-99 in a 12-year big league career. ''I'm just happy to be healthy and go out there and pitch and have fun,'' Liriano said.
