Rebuilding Brewers acquire Liriano, former Padres prospect

MILWAUKEE (AP) Minor league outfielder Rymer Liriano, a former top prospect in the San Diego organization, is headed to the rebuilding Milwaukee Brewers.

The Padres acquired left-handed reliever Trevor Seidenberger, a minor leaguer, from Milwaukee in the deal announced Thursday.

The 24-year-old Liriano played 38 games for the Padres in 2014, hitting .220 with one homer, six RBIs and four steals. He struck out 39 times in 109 at-bats.

San Diego had designated Liriano for assignment last week after signing free-agent shortstop Alexei Ramirez.

The Brewers designated outfielder Shane Peterson for assignment to make room for Liriano on the 40-man roster.
