RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Carlos Rivero.
After being claimed off waivers from the Phillies, Rivero put together a very solid season at Triple-A. Unfortunately he did it for an organization with an established franchise player at third base in Ryan Zimmerman, and an uber-prospect in Anthony Rendon who would likely get the nod at the hot corner should anything happen to Zimmerman. Given his lack of power, Rivero profiles best as a bench bat and corner defensive sub anyway. If he stays with Washington that seems like the best he can hope for.
Rivero had his second straight disappointing season at Double-A Akron, hitting just .232 and slugging .325. His inability to control the strike zone prevents him from taking advantage of his size (6-foot-3, 220 pounds) as he's never slugged higher than .411 in any minor league season. He'll turn 23 in May and needs to show signs of development. Rivero was claimed off of waivers by the Phillies so perhaps an organizational change will kick-start things.
