A source tells Jon Morosi of FOX Sports that the Baltimore Orioles are interested in Francisco Liriano, but says the Pirates are still focused on competing for a playoff berth. 

From 2013 to 2015, Liriano was one of the better starting pitchers in the National League. This season however has been a real struggle for the veteran left-hander, as he’s posted a 5.03 ERA with a 1.62 WHIP in 13 starts for the Pirates. With Liriano’s trade value being low, it would make very little sense to deal him away right now.
