MLB Trade Ideas: 5 Teams Who Will Target Francisco Liriano Before the Deadline

While Francisco Liriano had a good season in 2010 (14-10, 3.62 ERA) it is fair to say that he has only had one great year, way back in 2006 (12-3, 2.16).

Tommy John surgery in 2007 limited him severely for the following few seasons, but he is still regarded as a top starter in the American League.

Contract negotiations between Liriano and the Twins broke down before the season started and the lefty has struggled in the young season with a 7.40 earned run average.
