Liriano makes stride in comeback

Francisco Liriano had a big season in winter ball. We’ve all heard about that.

On Saturday, Liriano slipped on a major league uniform and faced major league batters for the first time since winter ball. And so far, so good.

The spring-training games are meaningless this time of year. But for the players involved, they are important. Especially for a guy like Liriano, who is coming off a miserable 2009 season.

Liriano’s line from Saturday against the Boston Red Sox: 2 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts.
