Roster Move: The #Padres have acquired LHP Trevor Seidenberger from the Brewers in exchange for OF Rymer Liriano who was DFA'd on 1/22— San Diego Padres (@Padres) January 28, 2016
Liriano had lost his spot on the Padres 40-man roster after the Alexei Ramirez signing was made official. He was designated for assignment on January 22nd and had to be on the Opening Day roster in 2016 or DFA'd. Now, only 6 days later, Liriano is headed to the Brewers. Liriano hit his only major league home run in 2014 and spent all of 2015 in El Paso. While his stats looked promising last year (.292/.383/.460 in AAA), the outfield had no room for Liriano and 2016 was looking to be the same.
For the Padres, they will be adding a left hander to the minor league bullpen.
Padres get a lefty reliever. Seidenberger had a 4.07 ERA between High-A and Double-A last season. https://t.co/LG34a2WwE9— Dennis Lin (@sdutdennislin) January 28, 2016
Seidenberger was drafted in 2013 by the Brewers in the 12th round. He has a career ERA of 4.37 with a record of 11-5 as well as 6 saves in his 4 years in the minors. He will most likely be in San Antonio at the start of the 2016 season.
Now that the trade for Liriano has been completed, we are still awaiting comment from the "At least the uniforms will still look the same!!!" delegation.
