3/23:Pittsburgh Pirates veteran starting pitcher Francisco Liriano and outfielder Melky Cabrera have been assured by the team that they have made the Opening Day roster. Liriano played last season with the Detroit Tigers, finishing with a 4.58 ERA and 18.8 K%. Cabrera played 78 games with the Cleveland Indians last year, slashing .280/.335./.420 with six home runs and 39 RBI. Neither veteran is likely to be a fantasy relevant option this season. The Pirates have not announced who will be dropped from the 40-man roster to create room.--Jonathan Chan - Rotoballer
