The White Sox organization is currently the land of opportunity.
As the South Siders sit in the midst of a rebuild, GM Rick Hahn won't leave any stone unturned as the team looks for potential building blocks for the future.
Similar to taking a chance on Alen Hanson earlier this season, Rymer Liriano became the latest former top prospect who the White Sox hope that a change of scenery will help jumpstart a once promising career as he was called up from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.
Liriano's services were needed on the major league roster after the White Sox placed outfielder Leury Garcia on the 10-day DL with a sprained right thumb.
Liriano, who was claimed off waivers by the White Sox from the Milwaukee Brewers last October, has spent the entire 2017 season with the Charlotte Knights. Liriano slashed .256/.323/.416 with 17 home runs, 52 RBI and 67 runs in 123 games with the Knights.
The 26-year-old Liriano, who was MLB.com's No. 60 prospect in 2012 and No. 55 prospect in 2013 as a member of the San Diego Padres organization, has a career minor-league slash line of .274/.346/.432 with 85 home runs, 430 RBI and 197 stolen bases in 861 games.
Garcia, 26, is slashing .270/.316/.423 with a career-high nine home runs and 33 RBI in 87 games with the White Sox this season.
After Saturday's transaction, the White Sox 40-man roster sits at 38.
