The San Diego Padres promoted outfielder Rymer Liriano to Triple-A El Paso Wednesday.

With the Padres recalling OF Jeff Francoeur Wednesday that opened up a spot on El Paso's roster that was filled by the free-swinging 23-year old slugging outfielder with some speed. Liriano arrived in O'El Paso with a slash line of .264/.335/.442 to go with 14 home runs, 17 steals (7 CS), and a whopping 102 strikeouts to just 35 walks over 371 at-bats while at Double-A San Antonio this season. The youngster had a nice debut for the Chihuahuas Wednesday going 3-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, three RBI, four runs scored, and one strikeout, but seeing as Padres possible left fielder of the future is now playing in the PCL you should take his stats with a grain of salt going forward. Pending how Liriano performs he could be in line for a September call up and possibly challenge for a spot on the big league roster next spring.

The Yankees have a scout in Chicago to watch Ian Kennedy pitch for the Padres Wednesday night. 

The irony of the Yankees scouting Kennedy should not be lost on you. It's almost comical, especially because of how poorly Kennedy has pitched in the years leading up to this first half in San Diego. His ground ball rate is up, but just over 41-percent isn't going to cut it in Yankee Stadium and facing all those AL sluggers again. It would be like when the Yankees went back to the Javier Vazquez well a second time, if you need an actual comparison. Kennedy in pinstripes would not be good for fantasy owners.

Chase Headley is batting sixth for the Yankees on Wednesday.

It's a nice RBI slot to be in, but who's to say that this is where he'll stick most of the time? We'll probably see a few different lineup configurations over the next few weeks while manager Joe Girardi sorts everything out and sees what works best.

Padres OF Cameron Maybin suspended 25 games for positive test for Amphetamine.

OK, well now this guy has just vaulted up into full-blown clown status, if he wasn't there already. You're telling me that this guy played this poorly and he was taking speed? Come on. What a joke. If you haven't completely moved away from using Maybin, now is your chance for a clean break. Drop him for good and don't ever look back.

The San Diego Padres have recalled Jeff Francoeur from Triple-A El Paso Wednesday.

Yuck. Bring on the ugliness. Frenchy's numbers in Triple-A are completely irrelevant as he could be crushing the ball down there, only to come up to the majors and be a total mess at the plate. He is not someone to use for fantasy purposes at all and playing half his games in Petco Park will help suppress any remote power he may have left in the tank.

Yonder Alonso (wrist) went 1-for-3 with an RBI base hit Monday for Triple-A El Paso.

Alonso has been on the 15-day disabled list since June 19th with right wrist tendinitis, and now that he has progressed to playing at Triple-A his return should be right around the corner. Like most people who are on the corner though, Alonso should be avoided in most all formats as he already had suspect power before the wrist injury and although he had a seen a slight uptick in power this year it came at the expense of a respectable batting average.
