NEW YORK -- Francisco Liriano is set to come off the disabled list and make his Pittsburgh Pirates debut Saturday against the New York Mets. The left-hander has been sidelined all season while recovering from a broken right arm. He made five minor league rehab starts -- three for Triple-A Indianapolis -- and struck out 33 with four walks in 21 2-3 innings. He was 2-1 with a 4.15 ERA. Pittsburgh planned to clear a roster spot after Friday nights game or early Saturday. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said the 29-year-old Liriano wont be on a strict pitch count after throwing 98 on Sunday in his third outing for Indianapolis. "Were looking forward to getting him on a mound and see what the major league hitters tell us, him getting back in this environment, and see where it goes," Hurdle said. The team hopes Liriano can help fortify a rotation minus injured James McDonald and left-hander Jonathan Sanchez, who was released Wednesday. Liriano and the Pirates agreed on a $12.75 million, two-year contract in December.

He went a combined 6-12 with a 5.34 ERA for the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox last season. He was an All-Star for the Twins in 2006, when he finished third in AL Rookie of the Year voting, but hasnt been quite the same since undergoing Tommy John surgery on his pitching elbow in November 2006. Liriano won 14 games and the AL comeback player of the year award in 2010 before throwing a no-hitter for Minnesota in May 2011, but hes been hampered by control problems. "All the information we were able to gather, we felt this was a very good opportunity for him and for us," Hurdle said. "We believe hes in a very good point in time in his career to have a big bounce-back." ' ' '
