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. Aug 21 - 1:39 AM

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.
Aug 13 - 9:45 PM

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.
Aug 12 - 1:45 AM

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.
Aug 11 - 2:56 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.
Aug 10 - 8:35 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.
Aug 10 - 12:17 PM

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.
Aug 3 - 12:06 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.
Jul 29 - 10:19 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.
Jul 24 - 9:00 AM

Padres outfield prospect Rymer Liriano went 3-for-6 with two home runs for Double-A San Antonio on Wednesday, bringing his season line to .262/.329/.517 with Texas League-leading nine home runs.

Liriano's day also included two strikeouts, encapsulating his skill set - big power, too much swing and miss. He has 42 strikeouts in 161 plate appearances, so he will need to improve his pitch selection if he is to be successful at higher levels.
May 15 - 9:20 AM

Padres prospect OF Rymer Liriano was 2-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday for Double-A San Antonio.

Liriano missed the entire 2013 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, so it wasn't surprising to see him bat only .208 in his first 20 games to open the season. However, the 22-year-old has started to settle in at the dish over the last two weeks, highlighted by a 1.114 OPS and five home runs in last 44 plate appearances. Overall, Liriano is batting .248/.315/.479 through 31 games, with 13 extra-base hits (six home runs), five steals and a 31/12 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The combination of Liriano's spot on the 40-man roster and the Padres' offensive struggles should get him a look in the major leagues at some point this season.
May 9 - 11:45 AM

Padres outfield prospect Rymer Liriano hit his first home run of the 2014 regular season on Monday night for Double-A San Antonio.

He missed all of 2013 after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but he is still nearly a year younger than the average player in Double-A. He is hitting .205/.279/.385 through the season's first ten games, but he has the potential to hit 20 home runs and steal 20 bases while hitting .280 and playing a solid right field.
Apr 15 - 3:07 PM

Padres prospect OF Rymer Liriano connected for his first spring home run on Wednesday, a two-run shot, in the Padres 12-7 loss to the Indians.

Liriano missed the entire 2013 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but he's quickly making up for the lost time with a solid spring campaign. The 22-year-old has appeared in 14 games so far and is batting .273 (6-for-22) with two doubles, one home run and three RBI. In 2012, Liriano batted .280/.350/.417 with eight home runs, 61 RBI and 32 stolen bases in 127 games between High-A Lake Elsinore and Double-A San Antonio.
Mar 13 - 11:19 AM

Padres prospect outfielder Rymer Liriano (elbow) has "no limitations" this spring.

Liriano missed the entire 2013 season following Tommy John surgery, but he's back to 100 percent and figures to begin the year at either Double-A San Antonio or Triple-A El Paso. The 22-year-old has a legitimate chance of climbing to the majors before the end of the season. Liriano batted .280/.350/.417 with eight home runs, 61 RBI and 32 stolen bases in 127 games in 2012 between High-A Lake Elsinore and Double-A San Antonio.
Mar 5 - 11:18 AM

Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that Rymer Liriano (elbow) is currently playing winter ball and should be fully healthy and ready to go for spring training.

The 22-year-old outfielder slashed .280/.350/.417 with eight homers, 61 RBI and 32 steals in 127 games between High-A Lake Elsinore and Double-A San Antonio in 2012, then missed the entire 2013 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery. An intriguing blend of power and speed, he could crack the Padres outfield at some point during the 2014 season.
