Recovering Liriano arrives at Pirates camp

Posted: Updated:

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano reported to spring training camp Monday, but it will be at least another month before he throws his first pitch.

Liriano, who throws with his left hand, will spend the next four weeks rehabilitating the broken humerus in his right arm. He likely won't be ready to make his regular-season debut until early May.

"It's coming along pretty good," Liriano said. "I'm going to take it one day at a time and see how it feels over the next couple of weeks."

Liriano began jogging and throwing soft toss on flat ground two weeks ago. He'll wear a removable brace on his arm for the next two weeks before moving to the next phase of his recovery.
