The Star Tribune is reporting that Twins’ lefthander Francisco Liriano will undergo Tommy John Surgery. The surgery will be performed this Monday in Los Angeles. Liriano will be sidelined all of 2007, and come back healthy at the start of 2008. At least I hope that’s what happens. The Twins said they weren’t trying to rush him back, but it kind of seemed that way. If the Twins need a final push to make the playoffs late next year, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the kid out there.
