BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Liriano is a sinkerball pitcher who relies on keeping the ball down but doesn't have the command to make it work consistently. When he gets on top of the pitch and puts it at the knees, he induces a fair share of groundballs and can be reasonably effective. However, it flattens out and can turn too many outings into batting practice. The Brewers put him on waivers to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, so now the Phillies will try to get him to keep the ball away from the hitter's wheelhouse.
2004 It's pretty remarkable that they got something for Alex Ochoa, let alone something potentially useful, but Liriano has a frequently effective power slider that could give him a future. He still needs polish when it comes to changing speeds, but he hasn't been pushed too hard, and he survived his introduction to Double-A. You would think that would reflect the profile of someone with considerable promise, but a heap of unearned runs helped his ERA considerably, and his control issues don't seem to be getting much better. If he doesn't pick up better control, he could still be handy in the pen.
