Twins Rumors: Talks with Francisco Liriano ‘Backwards’

In their search for starting pitching, the Minnesota Twins were reportedly showing interest in Francisco Liriano. However, talks between Liriano and the Twins have gone “backwards” recently, according to La Velle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune.

The Twins entered the offseason with only one starting pitcher penciled into its projected rotation for 2013, left-hander Scott Diamond. Minnesota was able to acquire three arms, Vance Worley, Trevor May and Alex Meyer, for outfielders Denard Span and Ben Revere, but they still have voids to fill this winter.

Beyond Liriano, Minnesota has been tied to multiple veterans this offseason, including Brett Myers, Kevin Correia, John Lannan and Jair Jurrjens. If the Twins are unable to find what they’re looking for on the free agent market, they could attempt to swing more deals to fill out their rotation. The club is reportedly listening to offers for Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau and could also be willing to trade Josh Willingham if the price is right.
