Francisco Liriano Injury Update: White Sox Pitcher Expected To Make Next Start After Being Hit By Ball

Newly acquired Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Francisco Liriano was struck in the right quad by a Maicer Izturis ground ball in the fifth inning of his start on Sunday vs. the Los Angeles Angels, but the team said Sunday night that he's suffering no ill effects as a result. Liriano was removed after the injured area began to cramp up, but the White Sox said that they anticipate him making his next start.

When he was hit, Liriano was in the midst of his second consecutive solid start since coming to Chicago. He pitched five innings on Sunday, giving up four hits and an earned run while striking out six batters and only walking one. In two starts with the White Sox, Liriano has given up only three earned runs in 11 innings while striking out 12.

The White Sox will host the Royals starting Monday.
