Analysis: Liriano allowed seven runs on five hits and three walks in two innings as the Blue Jays defeated the Indians 8-7 on Wednesday. Control problems have plagued Liriano, who has issued 23 walks in 28 1/3 innings while going 2-2 with a 6.35 ERA in seven starts. The erratic lefty is still averaging over a strikeout per inning, though that's the only fantasy category in which he's an asset right now.

Analysis: The one silver lining in the Blue Jays' latest loss was that Liriano was miles better than his horrid season debut, when he was rocked for five runs and walked four while retiring just one batter Friday at Tampa Bay. Despite this encouraging outing, the lefty remains a risky play when he faces Boston's potent lineup at home on Wednesday.

Analysis: The Blue Jays rallied to take the lead later on and bail Liriano out, though the no-decision is small consolation. He shouldn't be a recommended play when he next takes the mound Thursday at home against the power-hitting Orioles.
