The Topps Player of the Year for the (A-level) Midwest League in 2011, outfielder Rymer Liriano is a five-tool talent on the fast-track to major league duty in San Diego. His 2012 numbers (.251/.335/.377) might look inferior to his track record, but it was the youngster's first crack at AA, so it's actually pretty impressive. The Dominican native's award-winning minor league career is a tantalizing showcase of speed and power, just the thing the Padres could use at the top of the order. If he lights up AA pitching this spring, he could be in the majors by midseason. If not, he's still a near-lock for the 2014 lineup.

Rymer Liriano will miss the entire 2013 season to have and recover from reconstructive surgery on his right elbow. Liriano had a shot at reaching MLB this year, but now he'll need to re-prove himself next spring. Luckily, a lot of Liriano's value is in his eye and wheels, so he should bounce back to the top of prospect lists eventually.
