Rymer Liriano smasher first home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Padres outfielder Rymer Liriano went 1 for 4 with a big home run in his team's 5-3 win over the Rockies Wednesday.

Liriano smashed the ball an estimated 427 feet to left field for a two-run blast, putting his team up 3-1 in the fourth inning. He's 2 for 9 with one home run since joining the major-league squad.


Rymer Liriano a wait-and-see type


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/11/2014) If you play in an NL-only league, drop everything you're doing and pick up Rymer Liriano. I'll wait.

Back? Great, now let's talk about why you had to do that and mixed-leaguers didn't.

Liriano is talented, no doubt about it. He could always run, having stolen as many as 66 bases in a minor-league season, and has taken a big step forward in terms of power with 14 home runs in 433 at-bats between Double- and Triple-A this year. He was regarded on about the same level as Gregory Polanco before losing all of 2013 to Tommy John surgery.

But he hasn't progressed as quickly as Polanco. He has some plate discipline issues that could limit his batting average, and his minor-league numbers, while good, aren't other-wordly.

It's nitpicky, yes, but with a crowded player pool, that's the way you have to be sometimes. And frankly, the biggest reason you can wait and see on Liriano is because everyone else is doing the same. He's only 14 percent owned even with all the hoopla of his promotion. Unlike when Polanco came up (he was already more than 70 percent owned at the time), this won't be your only shot at Liriano. You can wait until he goes 3 for 5 with a homer (which he may or may not do) before agonizing over that roster decision.

Of course, if it's easy call, have at him. Doesn't hurt to beat the rush, assuming there is one. I imagine that would only the case in a five-outfielder league, though.


Report: Padres set to bring up Rymer Liriano


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The Padres are set to promote outfielder Rymer Liriano from Triple-A El Paso on Monday after just 16 games at that level, milb.com has reported.

Liriano, who was signed by the team as a 16 year old in 2007, has bounced back well after elbow surgery wiped out his 2013 season. He has sizzled with El Paso to the tune of a .452 average with 11 doubles and 13 RBI.


Rymer Liriano makes the jump to the majors


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Padres outfielder Rymer Liriano is making the jump from Triple-A to the majors, according to U-T San Diego. San Diego promoted Liriano on Sunday. The 23-year-old prospect hit .452 in 16 games with Triple-A El Paso.

Jeff Francoeur's promotion among Padres transactions


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) The Padres are making some changes to their rosters throughout the organization, according to MLB.com. One of the bigger transactions will be promoting veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur from Triple-A El Paso to the major-league roster.

Outfield prospect Rymer Liriano is being promoted from Double-A San Antonio to El Paso, and outfielder Alex Dickerson will be promoted from Class A Eugene to San Antonio.


Rymer Liriano clubs two home runs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Padres outfielder Rymer Liriano clubbed two home runs Wednesday.

Liriano went 3 for 6 during the appearance. He scored two runs and drove in three. Liriano struck out in two of his other three plate appearances. He's hitting .262/.329/.517 in 145 at-bats at Double-A.


Padres move four to minors


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) The Padres have sent pitcher Keyvius Sampson to Triple-A El Paso and outfielder Rymer Liriano to Double-A San Antonio. They have reassigned pitcher Leonel Campos and shortstop Jonathan Galvez to minor league camp.

Rymer Liriano won't be restricted during spring


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Padres outfielder Rymer Liriano has no restrictions during spring training, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Liriano had Tommy John surgery last spring, and the team kept him from doing too much during the offseason. Now that he's back in camp, he says he has no restrictions. Liriano is still rounding into form after barely playing baseball during the winter. "The main thing right now is, I need to work my body, work my swing and my defense too," Liriano said. "I just need to play."

Liriano was considered a top prospect in the club's system prior to the injury.


Padres shed two players


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2013) The San Diego Padres made their latest roster cuts Monday and optioned outfielder Rymer Liriano and pitcher Jose De Paula to Double-A San Antonio.

Prospect Liriano out for season


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2013) Padres outfield prospect Rymer Liriano is scheduled to have Tommy John surgery on his right elbow and will miss the entire 2013 season, MLB.com reports. Liriano, heralded as one of the top prospects in the San Diego organization by several publications, reportedly suffered the injury last month while playing catch in his native Dominican Republic. He will likely have surgery next week. "He was coming off a real strong [Arizona] Fall League, was in great shape and he might have had a chance to see San Diego by the end of the year," Padres director of player development and international scouting Randy Smith said.

Liriano has lofty goals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2013) MLB.com reports Padres outfield prospect Rymer Liriano has lofty expectations as spring training begins. "My perspective is to make the major league club," Liriano said. "I'm physically and mentally prepared, ready for spring training." Liriano has played only 53 games above Class A, but he feels he's "100 percent prepared to be in The Big Show" because of his skill set. "[The 2012 season] was very fun and very good for me," Liriano said. "I made a lot of sacrifices to be where I am now. I was also happy when they selected me for the Futures Game. Although I didn't play a lot, I learned that you can do a lot more than you think."
