According to a source, he’s not ready to talk extensions with the Emeralds, period. In Onley’s opinion, Lirano is ‘good as gone’ after this year.¬†Liriano is considered as an important piece of the Emeralds rotation this year as they continue their journey to the CBL playoffs.The 30-year-old left-hander has a 4.26 ERA, 57 strikeouts in 50.2 innings pitched this year.
