The Brewers continued to re-tool their roster on Thursday, acquiring outfielder Rymer Liriano from the San Diego Padres in exchange for left-handed pitcher Trevor Seidenberger.
Liriano, 24, was originally signed by San Diego out of the Dominican Republic in 2007. He made his way up through the Padres organization, entering the 2012 season ranked as the #49 prospect in all of baseball according to Baseball America.
Liriano made his big league debut with San Diego in 2014, appearing in 38 games and batting .220, collecting 24 hits in 109 at bats.
After spending all of last season at Triple-A El Paso, batting .292 with 31 doubles and 14 home runs in 131 games, Liriano was recently designated for assignment by the Padres when they signed free agent infielder Alexei Ramirez last week.
Seidenberger, 23, was a 12th round pick by Milwaukee in 2013 out of TCU. He spent the majority of last season at High-A Brevard County, getting a brief call-up to Double-A Biloxi where he made eight relief appearances before returning to Brevard.
To make room for Liriano on the Brewers 40-man roster, veteran outfielder Shane Peterson was designated for assignment.
