RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Rivero has been worked slowly in the Rays' organization, spending a full season at each stop along the way. He was productive in 2013 with High-A Charlotte, pitching in 25 games with 23 of those being starts. The southpaw is known to have a solid fastball, despite his thin frame (6'0", 150). He also confidently mixes in his secondary pitches, though they are thought to need some development before he can reach the majors. He posted a 3.40 ERA, which included two shutouts and 91 strikeouts in 127 innings. His walk rate increased slightly last season, but it seems likely he will spend most of the 2014 season one rung up the ladder with Double-A Montgomery.
