 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Minnesota Twins recalled left-hander Francisco Liriano on Friday, and he's expected to make his first start after missing all of last season because of elbow surgery Sunday against the Kansas City Royals.
Liriano was 12-3 with a 2.16 ERA as a rookie in 2006. He started 16 games and appeared in 12 others, striking out 144 in 121 innings and holding opposing hitters to a .205 average. But he was shut down after a Sept. 13 start against Oakland when he left after two innings.
Liriano began this season in the minors, going 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA in two starts with Triple-A Rochester and Class-A Fort Myers. He allowed 11 hits and seven runs in a combined 9 1-3 innings, with 11 strikeouts and five walks.
He threw 88 pitches in four innings on Tuesday for Rochester, allowing three runs and five hits while walking three and striking out three.
To make room for Liriano, the Twins placed right-hander Kevin Slowey on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 4, with a right biceps strain. In his only start for the Twins, Slowey allowed three runs and four hits in 3 1-3 innings in an April 3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels.
