Career[edit]

San Diego Padres[edit]

Liriano signed with the San Diego Padres as an international free agent in 2008, and spent the first two seasons on the Padres' rookie-class teams. He then spent the 2010 season primarily with the Eugene Emeralds and the Fort Wayne TinCaps.

Liriano played most of the 2011 season in level-A, batting .319 with 12 home runs and 65 stolen bases and was named Midwest League MVP. Liriano began the 2012 season with the Padres' High-A affiliate Lake Elsinore Storm in the California League and was named a midseason All Star.

Liriano was added to the Padres 40 man roster on November 18, 2011.[1] Liriano was named by Baseball America as the 49th best prospect in baseball heading into the 2012 season.[2] He was named to appear in the 2012 All-Star Futures Game.[3]

Liriano was called up to the majors for the first time on August 11, 2014, and he played in 38 games his rookie season.

Liriano spent the 2015 season with the El Paso Chihuahuas of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League. The Padres designated Liriano for assignment after the 2015 season.[4]

Milwaukee Brewers[edit]

The Padres traded Liriano to the Milwaukee Brewers for Trevor Seidenberger on January 28, 2016.[5] Liriano is one of nine players competing to be the Brewers center fielder for the 2016 season.[6]
