According to a report from MLB.com’s Corey Brock, the Padres are expected to call up outfield prospect Rymer Liriano on Monday, when the club will open up a short three-game homestand against the Rockies. The Padres will make a corresponding roster move tomorrow.

Liriano, 23, was promoted to Triple-A El Paso shortly after the All-Star break. In 69 plate appearances, he slashed .467/.536/.683 with 11 doubles and 13 RBI. He entered the 2013 season as a consensus top-100 prospect, getting a #39 overall ranking from Baseball Prospectus, #49 from Baseball America, and #55 from MLB.com. However, he missed the entire season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, and fell out of the top-100 going into the 2014 season. However, he still ranked among the top-ten in the Padres’ system.

      Their prospect is some guy named “chargrz” that patrols hardballtalk. He has been reported to troll the HBT blogs looking for anything Padres related when he then attempts to act important only to look like a incompetent troll!

    hopefully he will do well enough to replace venable.

    Sheesh hopefully this guy will bring them some personality and a spark. The Padres have always been a generic team but this years lineup is laughably full of anonymous players. It’s probably the worst lineup I”ve ever seen in my life
