Word on the street is that the Twins are ready to bring Francisco Liriano back up to the Major League ranks. To do this they will need to make room on the roster. Rumor has it that the Twins will DFA Livan Hernandez to make room. Apparently Minnesota's front office is willing to eat the rest of his $5 million contract.
Hernandez is 10-8 with a 5.48 ERA. He has slumped lately, but was solid earlier in the year (about the time the Twins came to Coors Field). If the Twins end up DFA'ing Hernandez, should the Rockies look into claiming the Cuban off waivers? He has a good rep as an innings eater, and, if nothing else, he's sure better than Valerio De Los Santos.
