Rymer Liriano is not in the Padres' starting lineup on Thursday.
Liriano has been struggling at the plate lately and has seen his average drop to .207 on the season. It's not clear whether this is just a day off or a multi-game benching, but Yangervis Solarte will play left field Thursday.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jose Reyes pleaded not guilty to his domestic abuse charge.
Reyes was not present but his attorney entered the plea on his behalf. The next court date is scheduled for Jan. 14, when a pretrial hearing is scheduled. Reyes was arrested after an incident with his wife left her to be treated at the hospital for leg injuries and scratches on her neck. This is not going to be a good thing for Reyes or the Rockies or MLB for that matter. The league is likely going to let it play out in court before deciding if disciplinary actions should be taken.
