According to reports, former Detroit Tigers pitcher Francisco Liriano, who pitched for parts of 14 seasons in Major League Baseball, is retiring.
Free-agent pitcher Francisco Liriano is retiring after 21 seasons in Major League Baseball, agent Mike Maulini tells FanSided.
Liriano pitched in the Major Leagues for over two decades, making his debut back in 2005 with the Minnesota Twins. He followed his September callup with a brief but masterful 2006 campaign that saw him pitching as the Robin to Johan Santana’s Cy Young-winning Batman on the Twins staff. He posted a 12-3 record but his incredible year succumbed to Tommy John surgery at end of the season, which kept Liriano away from the Twins until the 2008 season.
Congrats on a great career, Francisco!
