Contributes as pinch hitter in win over Nats
3BMiami Marlins
July 9, 2018
Rivera entered Sunday's win over the Nats in the seventh inning as a pinch hitter, going 1-for-1 with a run scored and a stolen base.
ANALYSIS
The 26-year-old is back to coming off the bench now that Martin Prado has rejoined the lineup, and Rivera's .202/.316/.253 slash line on the season may keep him there even if injuries open up playing time around the Marlins' infield again. He currently qualifies at second base, third base and shortstop in most leagues and could add first base and outfield to his portfolio in the second half, but even in deep NL-only leagues, there's little reason to carry him on a fantasy roster.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Rivera broke camp with the big league club in a utility role, but he hit a disappointing .196/.213/.261 over the first month-plus of the season before being sent back down to the minors. The 24-year-old spent the rest of the season bouncing back and forth between the majors and minors, though he posted a sub-.230 average and sub-.600 OPS at both levels. The infielder also struggled with his plate discipline, as he struck out 98 times combined at Triple-A Colorado Springs and the majors compared to just 12 walks. Rivera figures to enter spring training in a similar position this season where he'll fight for a backup infield job, but little in his career thus far suggests he'll be able to emerge as anything more than a reserve player even if he does crack the Opening Day roster.
Rivera bounced around the minors with the Brewers in 2015 but earned a September callup after posting a .720 OPS at Double-A Biloxi. He only mustered one hit in 15 plate appearances with the Brewers, but his promising season in the minors still made the Brewers take notice. He's only 23, and if he can continue to improve his hitting and solid defense all around the infield, he could compete for a bench position in the near future. However, with many other infield options who have more major league experience, as well as the imminent callup of top prospect Orlando Arcia, his ceiling seems limited unless he breaks out during spring training.
