2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

At this point, Rivero is purely a wild card as far as prospects go. Acquired from the Rays in the Nate Karns deal before the start of the 2014 season, the skinny left-hander struggled to stay healthy last year. When he was on the field he battled the same control issues he faced in the Tampa organization. His raw stuff is eye-opening, and lefties with mid-90s heat, sharp curves and workable changeups will keep getting chances to put it all together long past the point when it's obvious they won't. Barring a catastrophic injury or development spike that carries him all the way to the major league bullpen, Rivero will have a permanent spot on Nationals' top prospect lists for the foreseeable future.

2014

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.
