December 22, 2017
Liz signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers on Friday that includes an invite to spring training.
ANALYSIS
The 34-year-old righty last pitched in the majors in 2015, posting a 4.24 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 27 strikeouts in 23.1 innings of relief with the Pirates. He also had an impressive strikeout rate at Triple-A that year. If he makes the club out of spring training, he would likely pitch in low-leverage situations.

2007
A change of scenery could be exactly what Liz needs. He has proven himself in the minor leagues but that success did not translate to the big league level in Baltimore. Petco Park is also a pretty nice change from the hitter-friendly AL East, but it is unclear if they are thinking rotation or bullpen at this point. He's more of a “wait-and-see” than a “draft-and-hope” at this point given the command issues that have plagued him.
Liz was one of several Orioles starters who shuttled between Triple-A and the big leagues during the 2008 season. The problem was that Liz was an entirely different pitcher at each level. He had a 3.62 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in Triple-A, but a 6.72 ERA and 1.78 WHIP with Baltimore despite pitching about the same number of innings at both stops. Liz really doesn't have much left to prove in the minors, so he needs to come through soon to keep his name in the Orioles' plans. If starting doesn't work out, Liz could make the move to the bullpen, where some have speculated that he could be a closer in waiting. That said, Liz still is reserve roster material until he improves his command.
Liz was the Orioles' minor league pitcher of the year in 2007, after a campaign in Double-A Bowie that was highlighted by a no-hitter and 161 strikeouts in 137 innings. Liz has a fantastic fastball, but much like organization mate Daniel Cabrera, he often doesn't know where it's going. That flaw in his skill set was highlighted in a pretty rough September callup. Look for him to work on his command at Triple-A in 2008.
Liz tantalizes with his electric fastball and tantalizing strikeout numbers -- he's punched out 286 batters in 227.2 minor league innings -- but his minor league walk rate has been subpar (4.63 per nine innings) and he’s struggled when promoted through the system the past couple seasons. While he’s someone to keep an eye on, Liz’s future might be in the bullpen, and if such a transition takes place he won't make it to the majors for at least a couple of seasons.
