And the deal is finally official after new terms are agreed upon after an injury to Liriano's non-throwing arm arose.

Basically the original 2 year/$12.75 million deal goes on as planned if he doesn't miss any time due to the injury, but the deal shrinks if he does miss time.

Jeff Karstens was added back into the mix last week, so the Pirates will head to Spring Training with 7 starters expected to make the opening day roster, Charlie Morton expected back in June, and Gerrit Cole likely ready by June.

Starting depth in Pittsburgh for the first time in more than two decades.
