The End Of Liriano?

location.php

Francisco Liriano really struggled with his control tonight. Without even typing up his stats, you can tell he just didn’t have it. Sadly, if you go through his pitch f/x archives you see a lot of this. His changeup doesn’t even matter anymore, and since the surgery he lost that great slider. No control, not as much movement, nowhere near the velocity. The fastball isn’t the problem (although that’s erratic too), it’s that the slider is ineffective. Sad, sad story.

Thanks to brooksbaseball.net for the graph.

  1. I think I see a red dot next to the 1.5 on the Y-Axis over there. I hope that was a pitchout or this guy needs a new pitching coach.
