2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: BUM SHOULDER SENDS FRANCISCO LIRIANO TO THE DL

Coming off a 7-earned run in two inning disaster in his last start, the Toronto Blue Jays placed struggling pitcher Francisco Liriano on the 10-day DL with shoulder soreness.  During the outing and even prior, Liriano was showing a vast decrease in velocity which raised the red flags here.  Be that as it may, you really had to be a glutton for punishment to own Liriano this season in fantasy baseball as he came off a terrible year with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2016 and then landed in arguably the worst ballpark for pitchers in the American League in Rogers Center to add to the volatility.  While Liriano had a strikeout machine spring, he has simply been brutal when the games have counted.  The control has been disgusting to say the least as Liriano's 7.31 BB/9 mark is a joke and his 0.95 HR/9 just as nasty.  Liriano should have already been dropped in all formats and honestly his days of being on a fantasy baseball roster should be finished.
