Minnesota Twins Rookie Pitcher, Francisco Liriano was born on October 26, 1983, in San Cristobal, Dominican Republic. He attended Americo Pere (DR) high school. Originally starting with the Giants, Francisco was acquired with Joe Nathan and Boof Bonser for A.J. Pierzynski in November 2003.

In the minors he led all pitchers in strikeouts and was only 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 5, 2005, with the Minnesota Twins. He later joined the starting rotation and won his first game on September 30, 2005 against the Detroit Tigers.

Francisco Liriano allowed five hits in seven innings for his first major league win. "He threw as good as we were expecting and hoping he'd throw," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He was throwing the fastball, using the fastball, locating the fastball and working off of that. Once he does that, his slider and changeup are unbelievable." Francisco tied a career high with eight strikeouts. With a fastball that touched 96 mph to complement a biting slider.

Francisco Liriano has high-strikeout potential and could be a fun rookie to watch in the Twins bullpen. The Twins have announced that he is not an option for trading despite the fact that if he doesn't win a starting rotation spot out of spring training, he would begin the season as a starter in the minors.
