08:05 AM ET 01.23 | Finally, the Pirates and Francisco Liriano have reportedly come to terms, though questions remain. The mystery of [Liriano's] broken right arm received some unsubstantiated clarification recently with a newspaper in his native Dominican Republic reporting he suffered it in a bathroom fall. According to elcaribe.com, the newspaper's website, Liriano fell days after the Dec. 21 agreement on his original two-year, $12.75 million contract with the Pirates, fracturing the humerus bone in the upper arm. Citing a "source close to the player," the report said Liriano's right arm is in a cast. The report included no other details as to where or how exactly the left-handed pitcher had fallen. The accident forced the sides to revisit terms of the original contract.

Don't they say 90% or some other high number of all accidents happen in the home.

Batting is going to be tough with a cast on......Although he would not have on less armor than Bonds did

I'm sure the Truth lies somewhere between Alcohol, Call Girls and Monta Ellis's Mo-Ped.

Stay tuned :-)

wiseup: Typical MLB player. If he fell in bathroom as reported, did he fall in the shower or did he fall off of the throne? If this is true how does he find his way from the dugout to the mound?
MLB payers seem so fragile, especially pitchers
