Ex-Rule 5 pick Stumpf holds critical 'pen role

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 12:48:04 EDT

The Tigers signed Francisco Liriano to compete for a rotation spot, but with the understanding he's willing to slot into the bullpen if that doesn't work out.

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 13:30:00 EDT

Francisco Liriano spent the first half of his career tormenting the Tigers, one of the bright, young hopes on the Twins. That changed over the last five years, as the innings piled up, Liriano bounced around and surgeries sapped some of the strength from his left arm. Still, the sight of Liriano wearing the Olde English D on Saturday morning -- having signed a one-year contract to bolster Detroit's rebuilt pitching staff -- was an odd sight.
