Liriano Finishes Rehab
Minnesota Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano finished up his rehab program in Florida today and will now go back home and get ready for spring training as he always does. Francisco missed all of the 2007 season with tommy-john surgery, but had one of the best rookie years ever in 2006.
GM Bill Smith told reporters, "He has done very well, he's thrown a couple of bullpens this week and will discharge from the rehab program completely". Will be an interesting story to see how Liriano will return in '08 after missing an entire season.
