Phil Mackey of 1500 ESPN in Minneapolis reports that the Atlanta Braves had a representative at Target Field on Monday, presumably to scout lefthander Francisco Liriano.

Mackey writes that Atlanta "was said to be paying close attention to Liriano," who has a 2.41 ERA with 40 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings since returning to the rotation on May 30. On Monday he went seven innings and allowed one run on seven hits, while whiffing five.

Liriano is making $5.5 million this season and will become a free agent this fall. The Braves fourth and fifth starters, Randall Delgado and Mike Minor, have both struggled this season.
