Feeling better and better about him being a part of the ALCS, which is why we didnt replace him. We were optimistic that he would turn the corner and it seems like he is. Its not definite that hes going to be playable but we feel very good about it. Today was his best day.Lirianio was injured in the eighth inning of Game 2 when he struck in the back of the head by a Carlos Gomez line drive measured at 102 mph. Liriano exited the stadium before Sundays Game 3 in Toronto because he wasnt feeling well but was feeling better Monday, Atkins said.He had an awesome day, Atkins said. He came in and was able to do some physical activities with no symptoms, which is a very positive sign.Liriano is ineligible until Game 2 of the ALCS after being removed from Torontos Division Series roster.With time to rest and recuperate before the ALCS begins Friday at Cleveland, Atkins said the Blue Jays arent rushing to line up their rotation.Weve talked a little bit about several hypotheticals, Atkins said. Fortunately now we can control it more than most. I think what well do is take our time -- not too much to make sure were not disrupting routine -- but take our time to think through it extensively and make sure were putting our best foot forward for not only this series but moving beyond it.Right-hander Marcus Stroman, in line to pitch Game 4 of the ALDS, last started in the Oct. 4 wild card game victory over Baltimore.The sooner we decide the sooner we can set up more structure for them, Atkins said.
