Liriano signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners on Sunday that includes an invitation to big-league camp, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Liriano joined the Mets in spring training last year and spent 2019 at Triple-A Syracuse, where he had a .209/.346/.403 slash line with 10 home runs in 82 games. The 28-year-old last saw action in the majors with the White Sox in 2017 when he totaled 46 plate appearances in 21 games.
The Mets assigned Liriano to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Even with three lineup regulars (Jed Lowrie, Yoenis Cespedes and Todd Frazier) for the Mets seemingly on track to begin the season on the injured list, there wasn't a clear path for Liriano to break camp with the big club. The outfielder will likely report to Triple-A Syracuse after spending 2018 at the minors' highest level as a member of the Brewers and Angels organizations.
Liriano signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Thursday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. The deal includes an invitation to spring training. Liriano spent all of the 2018 campaign at Triple-A, splitting time between Colorado Springs (Brewers) and Salt Lake (Angels) and slashing a combined .253/.342/.472 with 20 homers and 11 stolen bases in 102 games. The 27-year-old has failed to impress during a pair of brief major-league stints, hitting a combined .220/.293/.287 in 59 games. He projects as organizational outfield depth.
Liriano signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Liriano was let go by the Angels earlier this month and had a .268/.343/.523 slash line with 16 home runs for Triple-A Salt Lake this season. The 27-year-old spent spring training with the Brewers in 2016, when he was hit by a pitch in the face and suffered facial fractures and a concussion that sidelined him for the season. Lirano will report to Triple-A Colorado Springs to bolster the organization's outfield depth with Keon Broxton and Brett Phillips still on the major-league roster.
Liriano signed a minor-league deal with the Angels, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. A former top prospect, Liriano will join a new organization after hitting .256/.323/.416 with 17 home runs and seven steals in 123 games with the White Sox's Triple-A affiliate last season. Liriano's power is intriguing, but his speed has tailed off in recent years, and he has largely struggled to hit enough to profile as a big-league piece. He will serve as organizational outfield depth and will get a chance to make the team this spring as the fourth outfielder.
