Liriano told to continue rehab on shoulder
ANAHEIM -- Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano met with Angels team physician Lewis Yocum to get a second opinion on his strained left shoulder on Saturday, but was told to continue rehabbing his injury.

Liriano, on the disabled list since Aug. 26, already underwent an MRI exam last week. It showed no further damage to his shoulder. He also had one in May, when he missed 14 games with a similar injury.

"It was nothing new," Liriano said. "It was the same as what the doctors told me in Minnesota. So I'm just going to rehab and see how I feel in a couple days."

Liriano said he plans on starting his throwing program on Monday or Wednesday, and that he still wants to pitch before the season ends as long as his shoulder gets better.

"It just depends on how I feel but that's the plan," Liriano said. "I want to throw at least a couple of innings before I go home."
