The revised deal is very favorable for the Pirates. Liriano is guaranteed $1 million, and has another $3.75 million in potential performance bonuses. If he pitches well, he gets $4.75 million. If he pitches poorly, he gets much less.

The option is also performance-based, and is set at $5 million, $6 million, OR $8 million, depending on time spent on the DL If the Pirates want to keep him, they excercise the option.

Liriano is also 29 years old, left-handed, deals in the mid-90's, and K's more than a batter an inning in the AL. Solid deal.

Latest reports say that Liriano will not be on the mound for 4 more weeks. He will likely miss most of April like Burnett did last year. Let's hope the results of the wait are similar.
