Pirates | Set second-half rotation

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 08:18:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano will start Friday, July 18, in the first game of the second half, followed by Charlie Morton, Jeff Locke, Edinson Volquez and Vance Worley, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Gerrit Cole (lat) remains out of the rotation for at least another week, but he should be back sometime in August. Worley remains NL-only fodder for as long as he's taking Cole's spot.

Pirates | Francisco Liriano starting Sunday

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 14:37:05 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano (oblique) will start Sunday, July 13, against the Cincinnati Reds. SP Vance Worley will work out of the bullpen Saturday, July 12, and Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Liriano is the epitome of high-risk, high-reward. He is worth adding in all formats if you're looking for pitching. Worley's value obviously suffers, but with Gerrit Cole also injured, Worley could be worth holding in NL-only leagues.
