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.

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.

Padres optioned OF Rymer Liriano and LHP Jose De Paula to Double-A San Antonio.

Neither cut is a surprise. Liriano will miss the 2013 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, while De Paula isn't close to being big league-ready.

Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that Rymer Liriano will miss the 2013 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

It's a tough break for the toolsy prospect. The Padres are hopeful he can swing a bat in six months and perhaps play in the Arizona Fall League and Dominican Winter League. Liriano, 21, was added to the 40-man roster over the offseason after batting .280/.350/.417 with eight homers and 32 steals between High- and Double-A.

Padres recalled OF Rymer Liriano from Double-A San Antonio.

Liriano, 21, is one of the toolsier prospects in baseball but has yet to put it together consistently in the minors. He batted .280/.350/.417 with eight homers and 32 steals between High- and Double-A this season.

Padres optioned OF Rymer Liriano to Single-A Lake Elsinore; optioned OF Blake Tekotte to Triple-A Tucson; optioned LHPs Juan Oramas and Jose De Paula, RHP Erik Hamren and INF Edinson Rincon to Double-A San Antonio.

The Padres reassigned left-hander Robbie Erlin and catcher Jason Hagerty to minor league camp. Liriano, 20, batted .298/.365/.465 with 12 homers, 68 RBI, 66 stolen bases and an .830 OPS between Class A Fort Wayne and High-A Lake Elsinore last year. He's the organization's best position prospect now that Anthony Rizzo is with the Cubs.

Padres purchased the contract of OF Rymer Liriano from High-A Lake Elsinore.

The move protects him from the upcoming Rule 5 Draft. Liriano, a 20-year-old outfielder, batted .298/.365/.465 with 12 home runs, 68 RBI, 66 stolen bases and an .830 OPS over 580 plate appearances this season between Class A Fort Wayne and High-A Lake Elsinore. He was recently hyped as the organization's top prospect by new general manager Josh Byrnes.
