The Pittsburgh Pirates agreed to a two-year, $12.75 million contract with free agent Francisco Liriano in the middle of December, but the official signing was delayed when the left-hander broke his non-throwing arm in abathroom fall. The Pirates and Liriano were finally able to finalize their agreement yesterday, but the 29-year-old is now only receiving a one-year
contract worth $1 million guaranteed, according to Tom Signer of MLB.com.
That bathroom fall cost Liriano quite a sum: Per sources, his deal guaranteed for $1M (from original $12.75M) with $11.75M in option/bonuses
