Second baseman Cory Spangenberg was the fourth-rated prospect, third baseman Jedd Gyorko was listed as the sixth prospect and right-hander Keyvius Sampson was tenth.
In addition to being named on the Top-10 list, Gyorko was also recognized as the best hitter for average in the Padres Minor League system, Spangenberg had the best strike-zone discipline as a hitter, and Liriano was selected as having the best outfield arm.
Other TinCaps to reach the best-of list included Adys Portillo with the best fastball, Simon Castro with the best slider, Jeudy Valdez as having the best infield arm and Rico Noel as the best defensive outfielder.
Baseball America also projects a future line-up for each major league team and the 2015 line-up for the Padres includes Spangenberg at second base, Liriano in right field and former Wizards Chase Headley at third base and Cory Luebke as the number three starting pitcher.
