After a few false starts...the deal actually is official now...and with only $1 million in guarantees. Liriano can still reach the full value of the original deal ($12.75 million over 2 years), but he's set to make a $1 million salary for next year with a $3.75 million bonus he'd get this season depending on time in the DL and a vesting option for next year that works on sliding scale with DL time for this year.

Potentially quite the expensive fall in the bathroom.
