Lirano broke his right arm last month and agreed to the deal just in case he has to miss time during the season because of the injury. If he does not spend any time on the disabled list, he will receive the full $12.75 million.
Liriano went 6-12 had a 5.34 ERA, 1.47 WHIP with 167 strikeouts in 156 2/3 innings this past season for the Chicago White Sox.
