    • Rivero was selected by the Braves with the fifth pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday. The 28-year-old righty is interesting in the sense that he has been pitching at Triple-A for the past three seasons, notching impressive numbers that suggest he might be ready for the big leagues. He posted a 2.13 ERA and 105:35 K:BB in 67.2 innings last season. However, the fact that the Cubs left him unprotected suggests that his upside is limited. The Braves will have to keep Rivero on the active roster all season, otherwise he will be exposed to waivers and offered back to the Cubs.

    • Cubs' Armando Rivero: Struggles in spring training
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rivero struggled a great deal through his two spring appearances, giving up four hits and three earned runs in 1.2 innings pitched for the Cubs. Posting a 16.20 spring ERA, the 28-year-old failed to impress after receiving an invitation to spring training from the Cubs in January. As a result, Rivero will be hard-pressed to find his way to the big league club this season.

    • Rivero received an invitation to spring training Friday. Rivero spent 2015 with Triple-A Iowa, putting up a 3.16 ERA with 53 strikeouts in 57 innings. The 27-year-old is going to have a tough time cracking the Cubs' bullpen despite the solid year last season, so there's a good likelihood that he'll end up in Triple-A for much of the season once again.

    • The Cubs optioned two players to Triple-A Iowa and assigned another six players to minor league camp on Monday. Infielder Christian Villanueva and catcher Rafael Lopez were optioned to Triple-A. Villanueva was hitless with four strikeouts and an RBI in eight at bats, this spring. Lopez hit .250 with two RBI. The non-roster invitees assigned to the minors were RHP Corey Black (13.50 ERA in 1.1 spring innings), RHP Pierce Johnson (one hit and three walks in four scoreless innings), RHP Armando Rivero (27.00 ERA in a third of an inning), RHP Donn Roach (12.00 ERA in three innings), LHP Hunter Cervenka (0-1, 15.43) and infielder Logan Watkins (no spring at bats).
