View Full Version : Livan signs with 9th organization

I'll give him a pass as he kindly tossed my son a ball from the bullpen in AZ this year, but I'm surprised he keeps getting chances.

Good for Livan. He's 53 strikeouts short of 2,000 for his career.

Him and Moyer are good signings if you just need a few starts. Livan makes an ok swingman if you have a need or even an ok 13th pitcher on a 13 pitcher staff. He has pitched well enough to keep playing, he just isn't that guy you guarentee a roster spot too. he's more of a mop up man / 7th starter for a team.

I had no issue with Livan on the Braves. Livan was used poorly by Fredi Gonzalez, and Frank Wren just took him away so the temptation wasn't there anymore. He's still a useful long man/swingman, but he should not be brought in ever with runners on base as he simply doesn't have the stuff for a situation like that.
