    • Rymer Liriano: Hits open market
      By RotoWire Staff

      Liriano was outrighted by the White Sox on Wednesday. The White Sox opted to dump Liriano from the 40-man roster, and the 26-year-old in turn becomes a minor-league free agent. He missed all of 2016 after being hit in the face by a pitch during spring training, but returned to hit 17 homers in 123 games with Triple-A Charlotte this season. However, he also struck out 133 times in 500 plate appearances, and Liriano will need to make more consistent contact if he's to ever carve out a significant role at the big-league level.

    • 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.

    • White Sox's Rymer Liriano: Shines in Monday's loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Liriano went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Indians. Liriano has started all three games since being called up from Triple-A Charlotte. Once a highly touted prospect, he missed the entire 2016 season after suffering facial fractures when he was hit by a pitch. That led to a concussion and vision problems. At this point, Liriano's merely trying to reclaim a career in baseball and is with an organization that will grant him an opportunity to show that he still belongs.

    • Liriano started in left field and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Saturday's 5-4 win over Tampa Bay. Liriano had his contract purchased from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday after the White Sox placed Leury Garcia (thumb) on the 10-day disabled list. With both Garcia and Nicky Delmonico (wrist) sidelined, Liriano could be a regular in the starting lineup. The 26-year-old is a former top-100 prospect who spent time with manager Rick Renteria when the two were in the Padres organization. Trades have improved the organization's outfield prospects, so the White Sox aren't looking at Liriano as anything other than a stop-gap solution, although he could use the final month of the season to work his way into the outfield rotation for 2018.

    • Liriano's contract was purchased from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday. Once a top prospect in the Padres' system, Liriano has floundered over the past couple seasons, in part due to injuries. He played 38 games in the majors in 2014, but has been confined to Triple-A since then. Liriano hit .256/.323/.416 with 17 home runs and seven steals in 500 plate appearances in the International League. With Leury Garcia (thumb) on the DL, there should be a handful of starts waiting for Liriano over the next couple weeks.
