Jered Weaver questionable for his next start

Jered Weaver left last night’s game with an elbow injury on his non-pitching arm. Bob Nightengale reports this morning that his next start is questionable:

 

Given that it’s his non-pitching arm that shouldn’t be as big a concern as his low velocity last night. As Matthew noted, He was sitting mostly at 85-86 mph with his fastball and he walked four dudes.

Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that the Tigers have signed Francisco Liriano to a one-year, $4 million contract.

Liriano split time between the Blue Jays and Astros last year, putting up a 5.66 ERA in 38 games, 18 of which were starts, striking out 85 and walking 53 in 97 innings. He pitched two-thirds on an inning in the World Series, but overall it was a pretty substandard season. But hey, those innings ain’t gonna eat themselves, and Liriano will eat some in Detroit.

Not to speak ill of him: he is almost certainly the second best Francisco Li- player in the division.
