Padres’ Minor League Roundup for August 7th

Triple-A: El Paso Chihuahuas (57-62)

The El Paso Chihuahuas defeated the Salt Lake Bees 13-2. Every El Paso starter had at least one hit as the team collectively had 17 hits, 8 of which were extra base hits. Code Decker and Adam Moore each had a homerun.

Rymer Liriano who has just been destroying the PCL, had 3 hits including a triple, a double, and 2 RBI. Liriano has now played 13 games at the Triple-A level, and owns a triple slash line of .462/.533/.654. During that span he has had 7 multi-hit games with 11 RBI and 3 stolen bases. If Liriano continues to hit the cover off the ball between now and when the rosters expand in September, I see him getting a cup of coffee before the end of the season. Unless Preller moves around the current logjam of outfielders on the Padres roster I think Liriano will start next season in Triple-A. This will give the Padres another year before Liriano will hit arbitration and subsequently free agency.
