White Sox sent OF Rymer Liriano outright to Triple-A Charlotte.
There were certainly spots available to Liriano this spring, but he hit only .170/.264/.340. The 25-year-old missed all of last season after suffering multiple facial fractures when he was hit by a pitch in spring training and it seems like a long time ago that he was considered a top prospect.

Rymer Liriano sustained multiple facial fractures after being hit in the face by a pitch during Sunday's Cactus League game.

He will remain in the hospital for further tests and observation. The Brewers will continue to provide updates on his status as they become available. It appears to be a foregone conclusion that Liriano will begin the season on the disabled list and it's difficult to speculate on just how much time he stands to miss. The important thing is wishing him a speedy recovery and hoping that he's able to make it back from Sunday's terrifying incident.

Rymer Liriano walked, stole a base, and scored a run Thursday against the Giants.

Liriano, who was acquired from the Padres in late January, is 3-for-11 with a double, a triple, and three walks this spring. He would be a lot more interesting in fantasy leagues if the Brewers gave him a shot in center field, but they appear to view him as a corner outfielder. There’s just not much opportunity there with Ryan Braun and Domingo Santana in the way.

Rymer Liriano went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a triple in Saturday's game against the Athletics.

Liriano showed off his speed with a triple in the second inning before smacking an RBI double in the fourth. The 24-year-old was once a top prospect with the Padres before they sold him to the Brewers for a song in January. On the rebuilding club, Liriano will have ample opportunity to cash in on some of that promise this year.

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.

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.
