Liriano will be away from the White Sox for three days to attend the birth of his child, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

It's not clear if Liriano will be placed on the paternity list or not with the White Sox not in need of his roster spot, but it appears he will not play again until next Tuesday at the earliest. Liriano has seen sporadic playing time in left field since starting four games in a row out there earlier this month, and his absence will leave Nicky Delmonico and Alan Hanson to handle those duties over the weekend.
