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 was forced to leave Sunday's game on a stretcher after being struck in the face by a pitch during the eighth inning.

An offering from Matt West sailed high and tight, striking Liriano near the left eye. The 24-year-old outfielder is in camp competing for a spot in the Brewers' outfield. It's unclear at the moment just how the severe the injury is and how long Liriano could be sidelined. Expect the Brewers to have an update on his status shortly.

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.
Mar 10 - 7:45 PM

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.
Mar 5 - 9:25 PM

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.
Jan 28 - 5:12 PM

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.
