Since Seth didn't post this weekend I had to go do my own digging to see what happened in Rochester. Liriano finally put together a good start down there. While it's only one start its good to see little upside for once. He pitched 6 innings gave up 2 earned runs, 5K's 2 BB's, and 4 hits. It's nice to see the guy have a little success. He also threw 91 pitches, 58 of them for strikes. So he showed a lot better control getting 64% of his pitches across for strikes in comparison with the roughly 55% he did the last two starts down at Rochester.
I found a short article that just said it was good to see him
with a smile after getting off the mound but nothing much about velocity what kind of pitches he threw or how much movement was on his offspeed pitches. So finally we get a tidbit of good news involving Mr. Liriano.
I was wondering if anyone knows what's up with Trevor Plouffe. I looked at the weekend boxscores for the Rockcats and didn't see him? is he injured or possibly getting called up to Rochester to replace Casilla?
