Brewers acquired OF Rymer Liriano from the Padres for LHP Trevor Seidenberger.
Liriano has been considered a top prospect in the past, so many were caught off guard when the Padres designated him for assignment last week. The rebuilding Brewers quickly jumped at the opportunity to bring him into the fold. The 24-year-old batted .292/.383/.460 with 14 home runs and 18 stolen bases last season at the Triple-A level and could make for an intriguing fantasy option if the at-bats are there. For what it's worth, he has some experience in center field. Jan 28 - 5:41 PM

The Brewers are close to acquiring Rymer Liriano from the Padres, per Jon Morosi of FOX Sports.

Liriano was surprisingly designated for assignment last week, so it's no shock that another team would have interest in the 24-year-old. Liriano slashed .292/.383/.460 with 14 home runs and 18 stolen bases at Triple-A last season. He couldn't ask for a better prospective landing spot, as the Brewers are rebuilding and have no reason not to give Liriano a shot at everyday at-bats.

Padres designated OF Rymer Liriano for assignment.

Liriano has failed to gather momentum since being named a top-50 prospect a couple years ago, but it's a surprise that the Padres have decided to give up on him. He's still just 24 and batted .292/.383/.460 with 14 homers and 18 steals at Triple-A last season. He'll land on his feet elsewhere quickly, whether by waiver claim or trade.
Jan 22 - 5:41 PM

Padres OF prospect Rymer Liriano crushed three hits including a two-run homer Tuesday for Triple-A El Paso.

Liriano had been hitless in his previous two games with four strikeouts in nine at-bats. The 24-year-old ranks fourth in the Pacific Coast League in runs (51) and is tied for sixth in walks (35). He's hit .357 over his last seven games with four RBI. Liriano played 38 games for the Padres in 2014 but hasn't gotten a chance this year because of San Diego's crowded outfield.

Padres optioned OF Rymer Liriano and INF/OF Alex Dickerson to Triple-A El Paso; reassign OF Rico Noel to minor league camp.

Liriano is a top prospect for the Padres, but the arrival of Justin Upton, Matt Kemp and Wil Myers left him without a starting role in San Diego. He'll be the first one up if one of those three gets injured, though, and his future is still bright.

Rymer Liriano finished 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's win against the Phillies.

This was only Liriano's fourth multi-hit game in 31 big league contests, and it set his new career-high for hits in a game. The 23-year-old's tools are evident in games, but the production hasn't been nearly good enough to guarantee him an Opening Day start next spring. Liriano is slashing .228/.294/.283 with a homer, four steals, and a 28/7 K/BB ratio. He'd whiffed in nine of his last 10 games, but managed to avoid a punch out this evening.

Rymer Liriano had his first major league multi-hit game in the Padres' win over the Dodgers on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old went 2-for-3 with a walk, double and two runs scored in the 4-1 triumph. He came into this game batting .217, but has nonetheless been an interesting and valuable offensive contributor from the jump, thanks in part to walking six times in nine games. Liriano is slashing a solid .269/.412/.423 through his first 26 at-bats.

Rymer Liriano hit his first major league home run in the Padres' win over the Rockies on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old made his big league debut on Monday, and has notched his first career big league homer in his third game. The blast occurred in the fourth inning, a two-run blast off of Tyler Matzek which broke a 1-1 tie. Liriano has a host of tools and he has already been putting them on display in his first 12 plate appearances.

In his major league debut -- a 4-3 win over the Rockies on Monday -- Rymer Liriano hit a sacrifice fly.

He finished 0-for-2 with that RBI. Liriano, promoted earlier in the day, slashed .291/.362/.473 with 14 home runs and 20 stolen bases in 115 games between Double-A and Triple-A, including .452 (28-for-62) with 16 extra-base hits and 13 RBI in 16 games at Triple-A El Paso. The well-built 23-year-old from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic missed last season while recovering from reconstructive surgery on his right elbow. In possession of the coveted speed/power combination, Liriano is worth at least an exploratory glance by owners in all formats.

Padres recalled OF Rymer Liriano from Triple-A El Paso.

Liriano is set to make his major league debut on Monday night against the Rockies. The dynamic 23-year-old has batted .291/.362/.473 with 14 home runs and 20 stolen bases in 115 games this season between Double-A and Triple-A, and is worth grabbing in most mixed fantasy leagues. The Padres have no reason not to find him regular playing time down the stretch.
Mon, Aug 11, 2014 02:56:00 PM

Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that the Padres will recall top prospect Rymer Liriano from Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

A corresponding roster move has yet to be announced. The 23-year-old outfielder has torn the cover off the ball in 15 games since being promoted to El Paso, slashing .467/.536/.683 with 13 RBI and three stolen bases. With his combination of power and speed, he's immediately worth a look in all mixed leagues.
Sun, Aug 10, 2014 08:35:00 PM

Padres outfield prospect Rymer Liriano went 2-for-5 with a double for Triple-A El Paso on Saturday, raising his line to .467/.536/.683.

Liriano has hits in 13 of his 15 Triple-A games, and has at least two hits in 11 of those games. His BABIP remains an otherworldly .609, but his .217 isolated power is only a little bit higher than his .178 while in Double-A. Liriano has the ability to be a below-average center fielder, but profiles as a strong armed right-fielder who plays above-average defense while hitting 20 home runs and stealing 20 bases. He could be up as soon as this September.

Padres outfield prospect Rymer Liriano went 3-for-4 with two doubles for Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.

Liriano has been locked in since his promotion to the Triple-A Pacific Coast League, hitting .459/.512/.622 with six doubles in nine games. His line is partially due to an unsustainable .607 BABIP, but Liriano has legitimate talent and should see time in San Diego by mid-2015 at the latest. He has the potential to hit .280 while going 20/20 and playing a solid defense in right field.
Sun, Aug 3, 2014 12:06:00 PM

Padres outfield prospect Rymer Liriano went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk for Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

Liriano has been on fire over his first six games in the Pacific Coast League, going 11-for-23 with three doubles. He has the potential to go 20/20 while hitting .280, and could see time in San Diego as soon as the beginning of 2015.
Tue, Jul 29, 2014 10:19:00 AM

Padres prospect outfielder Rymer Liriano went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a walk in his first game with Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.

Liriano hit .264/.335/.442 with 20 doubles, two triples, and 14 home runs over 99 games with Double-A San Antonio. He has a right-fielder's profile and appears to have shaken off the rust after missing all of 2013 after having Tommy John surgery. Liriano has a career high in home runs (his previous high was 12), so this could be the beginning of his tapping into his power potential. San Diego seems like they are undergoing a full rebuilding effort, and Liriano is one of the prospects who could see time in the majors in the near future.
