A Running List of Who Has Reported Interest In Francisco Liriano

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - JULY 13: Francisco Liriano #47 of the Minnesota Twins receives a standing ovation after leaving the field following the top of the eighth inning against the Oakland Athletics on July 13, 2012 at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

For the last week we've heard over and over that the Angels have interest in Francisco Liriano. But they're not the only ones, even if (along with the Blue Jays) they've come up more often than others. Here's a timeline of how the enigmatic southpaw's name has come up over the last few days.

Here are Liriano's numbers since his return to the rotation on May 30.


May 30 - Present W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2012 - Francisco Liriano 3-4 10 10 0 0 0 0 63.1 38 22 20 3 28 77 2.84 0.99

It's interesting to see how what-we-expected-to happen has turned into the current climate. Carl Pavano is injured; Matt Capps hasn't garnered too much interest to this point; Justin Morneau's production will not encourage buyers; Josh Willingham is so hot he's become a trade deadline darling.

Along with Denard Span, whose name has come up a couple of times but not nearly as often or as blatantly as it did at this time last year, Francisco Liriano is turning himself into a chip that could actually yield a return.

As of this writing, the following teams have either A) been reported as having an interest in Liriano, B) been reported as having scouted Liriano, or C) been reported as attending his starts: Angels, Blue Jays, Nationals, Red Sox, Yankees, Braves, Mets, Reds, and Padres. Excluding the five other AL Central teams, since it's highly unrealistic he'd ever land there, Liriano's picked up interest from roughly 40% of the market.

That we know about.
